About Today’s Photo:

I finally had my camera with me as I walked past these surprisingly pale pink maple leaves along one of the trails I run in the back woods. Kind of a unique shade… Thanks Deb for the ID—it’s a mapleleaf viburnum!

    It looks like Mapleleaf Viburnum (Viburnum acerifolium). They turn wonderful shades of pink and purple in fall and can easily trick people, especially around Halloween.

    • Hi Deb,
      Thanks for the heads-up! Makes sense to me both in the plant’s location and its size!
