I've only had my little maple tree a couple of years. And I'm pretty sure it hasn't flowered before. In fact I didn't even know that maples flowered like this!
What a lovely surprise to find these little sprays of lolly pink flowers appear with the emerging lime green leaves. And can you see in the last photo the little seed pod emerging from the flower bud with its characteristic winged form. Very sweet.
