This large and contorted Manitoba Maple is more fragile than it looks. It has some decay and splits and, one day, it won’t be able to hold itself up any longer. Once it leafs out, it casts a lovely shade, but the arborist advised me not to set up the hammock under it, for safety’s sake.
I went a bit crazy colouring/painting it, which was fun. At its base is the first narcissus bloom in my garden.
