Tiffany in Speedway

Sometimes, when I want to see jewels designed by Charles Lewis Tiffany 
or stained glass by his son, Louis Comfort Tiffany,
all I have to do is stand beneath a Japanese Maple in the spring.
There are several of these trees dotting the yards of Speedway and,
whenever I find one, I can't help but take several minutes
to look at the marvelous colors produced by the tree
as the sun shines through its beautiful leaves.

Glorious, Speedway!
Backlit maples are nature's own stained glass windows, and you've caught their beauty … er … beautifully, for which we can only sigh and thank you.

G'morning, Dive, and thank you. The neighbors might think I'm an idiot when they see me gawking upwards, or maybe looking for a treed cat. The trees are just too beautiful to pass by without looking at them with something like awe.
Oddly, none of them is planted for convenient admiration by their owners; if it were my yard, I'd have an arbor of Japanese Maples just outside my door so I could sit and stare whenever I cared to.

BTW, I have a packet of the evil dried ramen noodles for later research. Yuchiness shall commence later today.

Good luck with your noodle experiment. If you're not around tomorrow I'll know why.
