Notre Érable Norvégien atteint vers le ciel


Dans les collines qui alignent parallèlement aux plaines d'Adelaïde, on trouve beaucoup d'espèces des arbres exotiques. Le érable norvégien, (qui fréquent dans les régions montagneuses d'Europe), est un que nous aimons, et beaucoup de jardiniers dans les collines aiment planter des arbres et des arbustes européens. Quand il y a le jour qui est plus frais que 34°, vous verrez une photo différente, avec la douche d'extérieur qui tombe des branchements.
Our Nowegian Maple reaches towards the sky.
In the hills that run parallel to the Adelaide plains, one finds many species of exotic trees.
The Norwegian Maple, from the mountainous regions of Europe, is one that we love, and many gardeners in the hills like to plant European trees and shrubs. When we have a day that's cooler that 34°, I will show you a different view; and the outside shower in it !

Goodness what a sky. If you turn it once clockwise, it could be the sea frothing towards the shore. Lovely.

Lynn, I suppose it could also be a photo from space.
I only took the shot a short time ago and hadn't even blown it up.

I miss my Norway maple.
I had a huge one outside the front window but it was undermining the house so I had to cut it down last year. That sucked so bad.

Sad to hear it Monsieur,
We know, all to well, that syndrome - our highly reactive soils and tree roots are always a problem too.

Wow...on first glance, I thought it was a roiling sea...

We don't see much of the maple tree. I would like to dive into this blue water.

Hey CabaC - welcome back. Yes, I saw the rain pattern along the eastern seaboard - all the way from the top of Cape York down to Tasmania. Sheesh, we wouldn't mind just a little bit.
Dive, sorry about your Norwegian Maple - since you like things Japanese, perhaps you could plant one in a pot and bonsai it!
Maria - we call that a "mackerel sky" - after the fish of course. M.B sang a little ditty: mackerel sky, mackerel sky, two days wet and two days dry. We had a few fat drops of rain, but only about six.
