As seasons change, people (and trees) graduate from one phase of life and move to the next. Wearing an Autumn cloak this teenaged maple reminded me of a high school youth at graduation. This tree stands isolated at waters edge and without competition from other trees it keeps a perfect shape. It will develop into a grand specimen overtime and I plan to visit each year to observe it's progression to maturity.
