Saturday/ flowering ‘maple’

Abutilons (flowering maples) are part of a large genus of some 200 flowering plant species in the mallow family, Malvaceae.

The little lantern flowers on my flowering maple* (genus Abutilon) in my back yard, have started to appear.  If it stays happy, it should produce flowers throughout summer.     *The leaves look like small maple leaves, but it is not a true maple at all.
