Back when we got married, we gave our parents a tree. My in-laws received a monkey tail tree. We gave my parents a red maple tree. We saw it on the weekend, growing on the side of their house. I like the colour, it's more burgundy than red, and burgundy was the colour of my bridesmaids' dresses.
Some other shots of the trees in my parents' yard.
Trees and plants are so lovely! I wish I was a better gardener!
