When maple leaves start turning color in early autumn they renew our interest in the landscape around us when most of the flowers and plants in our gardens are tired and faded. They can be found in an array of vibrant colours that surround us with warmth and signal the start of time honoured traditions and holidays the season of autumn brings with it. Displaying a coloured leaf in your home can remind you of those joyful memories year round and create anticipation for the season to come once more.
The maple leaf is also rich in symbolism. For many the Canadian flag, depicting the famous red maple leaf has come to symbolize unity, tolerance and peace. As a tree independent of country the maple symbolizes balance, promise, longevity, generosity and intelligence. This is directly linked to the trees ability to live for hundreds of years, adapt to different soil types and climates; produce oxygen; store carbon; produce sap as a food source and pollen in early spring for honeybees; timber for furniture/shelter...
What does the maple represent for you and who in your life would love to receive one?
