Don’t know what these really are, but we always used to call them “helicopters”. Still do 🙂

Yup, helicopters! I remember picking up handfuls as a kid and throwing them up in the air to watch them flutter down. I think “maple key” is their “real” name.

Hmmm… I think I like helicopters better 😉 And yes, we’d throw them up in the air, too, and watch them flutter down again.

I agree about the name 🙂 – and the tree is a variant of the “Acer palmatum” or Japanese Maple (I have such one in my garden: http://truels.wordpress.com/2011/11/08/autumn-in-my-garden/ )

Yes, they are Japanese Maples, there are a lot of them at the Dallas Arboretum and they are some of my favorites!
