The new January Squares challenge, hosted as ever by Becky, the Queen of Squares, is all about ____light. In this often dull month light of any kind is what we all need to lift our spirits as we wait impatiently for spring to begin. Click on the link to find out more.
Japanese Maple Leaves: the Latin name, Acer palmatum, comes from the word palmatum (palm), referring to the hand-like shape of the leaves as noticed by Swedish doctor and botanist Carl Peter Thunberg in the 18th century.
backlight (verb) = illuminate from behind.

Well I never knew that about its name! We are both sharing word facts today 🙂 and you are right your backlight is a perfect mood enhancer
Good use of light, and the maple leaves are lovely.
Best wishes, Pete. x
Beautiful trees Pete. I bought a dark red one, but it’s in a container and hasn’t done very well. My site is too windy I think.
I’ve always loved them but we never had great success. Not about to try it over here 😦
No, I think it is a bit hot and dry for them over there. You can have a palm tree 🌴
No, ta! 🙂 🙂 Maybe an orchid tree!
I was just thinking about some shade for your fair skin… 🙄
So kind! But we were chatting on the walk today and one of the ladies had grown a potted orchid tree from the seeds of one in the water park where we used to do t’ai chi. So now we all want one 🙂 🙂
No idea what an orchid tree looks like, I shall go and Google it!
The ones in the park are quite tall but in a pot they are more manageable (I hope 🙂 )
Is it a bauhania? They do look big, but the flowers are gorgeous.
Oh, lordy- I’ve no idea! It was described to me as an orchid tree but Mick seems to think you’re right. 🙂 🙂
You could look it up!
No, not me! I’m busy enjoying myself writing Monday’s walk 🙂 🙂
Good grief girl, it only takes 5 seconds!
Do you have any idea how long it takes me to write my walks? Slow is my middle name 🙂 🙂 Happy Saturday! AND I have to try and keep an eye on the tennis, even though I can’t actually watch it!
Hahaha… 5 secs to look up the name you daft bat 🦇 😂 what tennis are you on about?
ATP Cup 🤗💕
Oh, right. I have been watching some of that on Amazon.
These colours are so beautiful. I think the Acer group of trees might be one of my favourites.
They are so lovely in the spring and the autumn seasons.
Love the collage header
This is a lovely photo but I have been far more entertained by your conversation with Jo! Hilarious. 🙂
Often the conversations are the best part of a post 😊 especially where Jo is concerned!
