The idea of "Maplesnow" is actually two-fold; the word is inspired by a snowfall, when really, really big snowflakes float through the air looking like maple leaves. When this kind of snowflakes land on beautiful, colourful maple leaves lying in the ground in late autumn, that’s where you find maplesnow in the purest form!
