This would have been great to post for Halloween but better late than never. The Japanese Maple tree we have in the front of the house literally just changed about 6 days ago. I didn't even know we had a Japanese maple. I would just come home and look at our tree and say "damn, that's a fine lookin' tree we got there". Then about 6 days ago i come home and it's blood red and looks absolutely gorgeous. Because i can't help but think in movies as i couldn't help but remember the scene from the ring where Rachel watches the tape for the first time in the cabin and the sun is beating down on the tree and it's glowing this beautiful blood red. It really hit me as the film is based on the Japanese film called Ringu and was like "Duh, Japanese film, Japanese maple"
I promise i don't have any VHS tapes that will kill you...well maybe a few :)
