Acer palmatum ssp. amoenum....I worked around this tree yesterday and today

It's "layered " color scheme kept drawing my gaze.

Got a lot done in two days. Not everybody's idea of fun gardening jobs. We weren't deadheading roses or planting pansies or doing a bit of minor weeding. Yesterday Telly and I spread 10? tons of CR-6 on trails and tamped it down. Today I blew leaves all day. Aggghhh! The good thing about blowing today is that the leaves are at least half down, dry, and fluffy, and so easily moved. It's going to rain a lot tomorrow so today we moved leaves where we'd like them to stay permanently. If things go as planned the rain will mat them down and they can commence decomposition.
