I love my Japanese maples too, they are such graceful trees. Your pictures are lovely. Will there be a post about Nevada and Arizona:)?
Indeed lovely, Tayana. I too enjoy cutting/forcing beloved branches ... twice the joy! Happy April joy, dear friend.
What a great idea. I love the zen look of this!
Lovely. A lot of Japanese Maples really suffered over here this winter.
And they look so lovely sitting on that table.
Those are so pretty--I had no idea maple branches would do that!
I have never even thought about Maple trees branches indoors. What a fun idea. They look so pretty.
You know you are very clever putting water in the vase. I pruned my Coral bark maple and brought some of the branches in and placed them in a white Kaiser porcelain vase (looked great!) I never even thought of trying to force them to bud and leaf out. Next year!!
Wow the maple give such a serene effect.
I love the last photo against the red wall. Perfect! Thanks for sharing.
Nice Tatyana! I knew we could do this with flowering trees but the maples look equally spring-like. And Lord knows we need all the spring we can get. :)
Thank you for sharing such a simple yet beautiful idea.
Now that was a nice welcome home treat :) I agree with other posters..a very calm and serene zen look.
Thank you everyone! I regret now that I didn't do the same with some branches of my red leaf maple.
Gorgeous! I have never thought of bringing in maple branches - I usually force flowering shrub branches, but these leaves are just as beautiful as flowers I think. I love Japanese maple trees and am fascinated by their delicate and unique leaves. Enjoy!
Very pretty. I love Japanese maples. Such delicate looking leaves.
How very pretty and inspiring. I never thought about bringing branches with buds inside!happy day!
Just gorgeous! What a good idea!
They are lovely. Their color is extraordinary.
What a great idea. Thanks for sharing!!
What a fun surprize !Very artsy looking also.
Hello Tatyana, how delicate the maple leaves look..
I did this with the branches off the redbud that had to come down because it split. They were covered with flowers.
Жаль, что японские клены не растут в наших краях! Все фото чудесные, особенно понравилось последнее.
Wow, that looks so beautiful, a zen corner. We dont have maples but i always look at them with amazement.
What a nice surprise to come home to. The delicate maple leaves looks lovely in the glass vase.
How nice to return home to new green leaves.
What a beautiful surprise to come home to! Happy surprises are the best. :o)
Exquisite, the cut leaf maple or acer as we more often call them are a favourite of ours. Outdoors the leaves are just starting to open.
I've never seen forced maple leaves before. Those are absolutely gorgeous; I love their golden color. -Jean
