My Japanese Maple

This was supposed to be one of the delicate, lace-cut Japanese maples. Someone was helping me excavate the pond and hit the sapling with debris.  We tried saving it but it didn't make it. Clearly, it had been grafted to another variety entirely.  Despite the bare sumac towering over the fence, my little maple is actually eight feet tall. I have grown to love it.
