Japanese Maple Mania

Happy (American) Thanksgiving everybody! Wishing you lots of mashed potatoes and gravy, which I have to admit are the best part of any Thanksgiving feast.

I’m jumping the gun a little, but it’s Black Friday sale time! Use the code BLACKFRIDAY here at witandwhistle.com to take 25% off your entire order now through the end of the day Monday, November 27th. (The discount code is not valid in my Etsy shop.)

In other news, it has come to my attention that my husband is an addict. Since we moved into the new house he will not (or maybe cannot) stop buying Japanese Maples. Daniel even stalked the Japanese Maple guy at the Raleigh farmer’s market until he agreed to let him visit the closed-to-the-public tree farm. They offered him amazing wholesale prices and delivery, so now we have 10ish (I lost count) Japanese maples all around our yard. Honestly, I don’t mind his new obsession, because now he can’t say anything about my houseplant problem!

Our forest of maples is currently blazing red. Check out this fall color…
