Love the red of the tree. Here in MI we are surrounded with white and brown trees. To see a red tree is awesome for me. Thanks for sharing!

I like your red berry trees. They are just about big enough for shade on that bench during parts of the day.
Happy RT! Thank you for looking in on my cars. The 911 thing was to rag about the difference in treatment the Woods got versus the Sheens. She was drunk and pulled a knife on him, poor Charlie was put in jail. He could serve two years in prison.
The song was popular back when I was 18 or 20 or so. A hit song. :-)

The tree must be rare even for Americans!
A miniature with the wide crown and crooked branches.
Kind of a Japanese look.

It looks so warm in SoCal. The red berries looking great against snow, and against the land in the Golden State. Wonderful! Happy new Year!
