In the San Francisco Bay area May is a great time for spring pruning of Japanese maples of all kinds. Pruning this time of year sets them up for looking great the rest of the summer.
This winter we will do some work on the blue spruce below. They are growing as a pair and already the Spruce looks better with all the dead leaves brushed off the top of its branches.
I love the views from the second story windows. It really looks like a living tapestry inside.
I love the next view from inside.
So many maples so little time! I love all the different leaf shapes, colors, structure and light play.
