Meet my Maple
I shall call her Akemi.
Akemi means bright and beautiful; red beauty.
Maples dont grow in my neck of the woods. Who am I kidding, what woods?!
The weather here is too hot and dry.
I ordered her from the East Coast and have babied her since I got her. Even put ice cubes around her base to cool her off. My neighbor makes fun of me and asks if I plan to install a portable ac unit.
We've been giving her some miracle grow and she is now about 3 feet tall. Stil very bare but she's getting taller. I love her red color. We dont get fall here and to see her leaves change color is beautiful.
I hope she survives, I hope to one day sit under her branches.
Happy Aloha Friday Everyone! Have a great weekend!
