Yes, I have the progression backwards I fear. When we finally get some green here, I'll post it just for you Susu! :)

Even here, the red maple may be a different type of tree, I believe. In a few weeks, I'll get some pictures of the sugar maple leaves that are likely what you and I have.

Red Maple is so-named for its red winter twigs and buds, red spring flowers, and for its tendency to have red summer petioles and red fall foliage. The red twigs of the first year's growth change abruptly to silvery-gray on the second-year wood, which is most evident in winter.
