leaves of pink


I mentioned yesterday that a Japanese maple tree in my neighborhood, now looking quite orange, once produced fall leaves of a surprising pink color. Here are a few photos I took in the late fall of 2012.

Two fallen pink and purple leaves among the duller hues of the oak leaves.

I was also quite taken by the complex pattern and varying shades of pink, on the leaves, looking like a mosaic, or fish scales.

These photos were from November, so there is clearly quite a bit more time for this year’s leaves to change color. I’m rather curious to see what they’ll do.

  1. I’ve never noticed pink leaves around here. Now, of course, I’ll be on the lookout for them. I like the mosaic pattern, too.

  2. Wow, that’s an amazing color for a leaf. I hope you’ll keep following the tree through this whole season and keep updating us on its color!
