silver maple, Acer saccharinum

One day not much later than this, I just had to get out and play with the camera. I took a walk around the yard, shooting anything I could. Even then I didn't realize what I had. As a matter of fact, I lived with it for 22 years without realizing. Only when I downloaded and saw it on the large screen did it finally penetrate. I used to think I was fairly observant. Silver maple originally grew in AL, AR, CT, FL, GA, IL, IN, KY, KS, LA, MA, MD, ME, MI, MN, MS, NC, NE, NH, NJ, NY, OH, OK, PA, RI, SC, SD, TN, VA, VT, WI, WV, ON, and QC, and has been introduced in CA, DE, ND, NM, WA, NB, and SK.
