I really just can’t get enough of these.

Acer Rubrum is by far not limited to Louisiana. In fact, I think its distribution includes lower Canada. I see these everywhere down south, so it’s an association thing with me. This particular color scheme may be localized. I just love it.

Which is odd, because I hate Red, yellow and orange. Really. They make me angry (find out why), but these are gorgeous, especially against that blue sky.
