We have a Japenese Dwarf Maple tree in our front yard, right by the steps that lead up from our driveway to our front door.

I love the shape of ours year-round, and the burgandy color adds a nice contrast to our front yard; but, in the fall, the leaves turn a brilliant red color right before they fall off.

I love it. That week before the leaves fall off is my favorite week of fall.
