Fairy Lights in the Forest

With velvety buds in palest shades of pink and green that glow with a pearly light, the Striped Maples add a touch of enchantment to the deepest, darkest spring woods.

The twigs, too, are truly lovely, as if designed by a fine jeweler:  the deepest green and dark rich red, ringed with pale gold, all in elegant symmetry.
