Our Japanese Maple

Last Spring we thought we'd lost our much loved Japanese Maple.
 We guessed that the damage was the result of a winter ice storm,
 but never figured out the cause or how the maple recovered.  But, it did recover!
  It was a beauty this summer and looked spectacular in the Fall when the leaves darkened to a deep red.

We thought it was a gonner.   But, it made quite a recovery.

It really added color to the summer garden.

But nothing can compare to the deep red of its leaves this Fall.

I think this may be my favorite shrub.
Do you have a fav?
