The pretty pink seeds have turned brown now… and they are still pretty. 🙂
As one of the fellow bloggers has informed me (thanks Crooked Tracks), the tree is called Amur Maple, lat. Acer Ginnala.
Apparently this tree is much used as bonsai tree. It`s been interesting to see photos of it in a miniature version, it makes a beautiful bonsai.

After I had learned that I was tempted to try to grow my own little bonsai. I went to the tree and collected some of those pretty seeds.
I think I will try to sow them in the spring. 🙂
