Drummondís red maple

We took a quick trip out to the National Arboretum during Thanksgiving week to see if there were any fall colors there since we havenít had much in our neighborhood. We didnít find a whole lot, but it was pleasant walking around the near empty grounds on a crisp autumn afternoon.

This is a Drummondís red maple, in training since 1974.

Very beautiful indeed, a mini-forest not just a collection of plants. So much work has gone into training these!

It is so neat that they keep these tiny trees in pristine shape for so long.
