We have been nurturing this Oshio Bene Japanese maple tree since we adopted it as a teeny sapling 18 years ago.  Genetic perfection, careful pruning, along with sealer on the cuts, has yielded a beauty.  We planted him at the edge of the pond; you may have seen this tree in other photos of our pond, but I decided to take a look at just him.  BTW, tomorrow we’re eating Traegered ribs and remembering those who shed their blood to save the USA, and wishing more realized what it takes to maintain our hopefully enduring experiment in freedom.
