Day 122

Second post of the day...  

I am pretty sure this is a Japanese Maple. I love the look of the blossoms with the new leaves. They look like beautiful butterflies resting on the branches.We used to have one, but the neighbors would use it as 2nd base in our front yard when we weren't home. So the one side of it was all worn out where they would hang onto it. It finally died. I was sad, eventually I will get a new one..

I love the way you look at things. It does look like butterflies resting on it! Beautiful. How frustrating to have the neighbors use yours as a base. :(
