Tiny echoes of rain – from the fresh new growth in spring to their ultimate expression
of vibrant fall colour, the leaves of the maple tree enrich the Canadian landscape
from coast to coast. In summer they form a dense canopy that shields against the sun
and unexpected rain. As each leaf bends under the weight of the moisture, water
collects at its lowest point and begins to form a water droplet, reflecting maximum
light from the sun.
