The enduring maple. Ready to survive even the toughest of frosts and ready to rise for growing onwards. Unwavering and naturally uncompromising about her beauty, because every fall her green leaf colour falls apart like an old brick wall and gives way too many other colours.
Her leaves are like an entire collection of watercolour sketches. The maple could have been the best companion for the king of the forest - the oak, but she leaves that duty to her sister the linden. The maple has other jobs to fulfil. She has to colour many court yards, small yards, parks and moss carpets. She has to change the honey yellows to the red of the Latvian flag. She has to shed and decorate. So much work. The maple goes on alone and strong at work. All with elegance and grace.
