I don't know a thing about Landscaping but have been getting more interested lately as I shop for houses.
Just last week I realized that a maple tree in my front yard had pink "helicopters" (now I know they are called "samaras"). I am nearly 100% certain that this tree has never had anything but green samaras before this year and it definitely has green leaves. The tree is only around 20 feet tall, and I have lived in this house for over 20 years and never seen this.
Is it normal for the samaras to change color?
At the same time, there is a "red bud" tree that suddenly bloomed this year, when I am (again) nearly positive it has never been anything but green and brown.
Do trees often bloom and/or change seed colors like this?
With the Lilac bush in that same spot in the yard it's suddenly quite beautiful.
