|Master of shapes and changes of hue|
The old Red Maple in my Mom´s garden reminds me of Radagast the Brown. (Radagast is a wizard in the Lord of theRings saga, my favorite story. )
The animals love this Guardian of my Mom´s garden, and the humans appreciate the shade of the wide spreading branches. I never get tired snapping pictures of this old friend! This picture in winter, shows Radagast lonely and sleepy. Soon the tree will be awake again with birds building nests and raising their young, and the maple flowers in spring will attract thousands of bees, bugs and butterflies. I can´t wait!
