202/366: weeping ghost maples

As I may have already mentioned, many of the trees on our property are evergreens, with the occasional deciduous tree thrown in.

I love my weeping japanese maples, Inaba Shidare, particularly for their autumn hues, but in winter I can appreciate their form when all you can see are the branches and trunk. Annual pruning of these three trees in the front garden helps maintain this weeping effect.
