    Maybe. I have Edge and Chrome here on my laptop and it's working on both of them. I just tried it again. Maybe it's personal. :)
    No, really, I don't know what to suggest, whether so few people can see it that I should remove it or not. I'm on Win 10, but this isn't a new up-to-date page, so no reason the newer browsers should be what makes this work. Or maybe that is. I even get the current temperature in Council Bluffs, IA (that's on the home page, not the Trees page to which our link goes).

    I have added to Maple Resources a link to Plantaholic Sheila’s albums | Flickr, photos posted by Silver surfer. On flickr, I was seeing all these photos being uploaded, with leaves in different seasons and flowers and samaras, it seemed like it would be a very good resource here.

    These both work for me. Are they a problem for other people?

    Wendy, both of the links take me to "The Japanese Maple" page now. Thanks.

    An excellent illustrated reference in French by a non-professional passionate:

    érables accueil

    Very accurate info on classification, synonyms, description, habitat, etc.

    Thanks, @AlainK. I've added it to the resource page, used the title as you gave it.

    Here are some that are not in our resource list, but should be! @wcutler :) They are from the Arboretum Wespelaar site, Arboretum Wespelaar, which is a really fabulous site with information on many genera. The director of Wespelaar is Maple Society stalwart and all around nice guy Koen Camelbeke.

    The de Langhe Acer key has been updated in collaboration with Maple Society Committee Member Dan Crowley of Westonbirt Arboretum: http://www.arboretumwespelaar.be/userfiles/file/pdf/Key_acer_JDL.pdf

    (This new key supersedes the version at Henrietta's Herbal, which should probably be removed from the resource list).

    A very good list of Acer species with photographs is available here: http://www.arboretumwespelaar.be/EN/Identification_keys_and_illustrations/List_of_illustrated_taxa/ and then click on Acer. You will note that many genera are so illustrated, although some are less complete.

    Further there is a searchable database of images linked to the identification keys here: Identificatiesleutels. For example, all the Acer can be listed by entering Acer in the "Scientific Name" box, or species can be searched for individually.
