    11th August 2020 and the heatwave continues, trying to update as many as I can as requested, even if they are not looking too good. Important to do this I feel.
    Even more new growth on my Vitifolium and looks like more to come.
    Photo taken early morning. Hense the bright sunshine on it.

    30th August 2020 and it is definitely getting colder. My maples are very happy now that the Summer heat has passed. They are all enjoying the early morning sun.
    The reds are appearing everywhere now. And still, some new growth. Very strange but interesting at the same time.

    12th September 2020 and believe it or not, new growth is everywhere in my garden together with Autumn colours emerging. Temperatures of 31°C expected in a couple of days.
    I was asked yesterday if my Vitifolium was still producing new leaves, so here it is.

    18th October 2020 and my Vitifolium is brightening up my garden. Won't last long so I intend to sit outside for as long as I can to enjoy.

    18th March 2021 and the longer daylight days and slightly warmer feel has made my Vitifolium start to burst into life.

    My Vitifolium this morning. Blooming for the first time since I grafted it a few years ago.

    What a difference a few days makes at this time of the year, nowhere near Keith's @kgeezy20, but getting there at last.
