    But the Amber is coming through nicely Xi. It's also loving those rain drops.

    So pretty...... and people talk about July being boring in the maple world. Your Amber ghost knocks that theory into touch Xi.

    Looking lovely N. Mines doing the same, my only concern is this 30°C + heat on tender new leaves. Next week looks better though.

    So far so good, it is in pretty much full shade though now so hopefully they'll be fine.

    While the old leaves are quite dull and crispy now, they just make all the better a contrast with that new growth:

    This little guy is developing some stunning colour as the year onfolds. I think it's my favourite in my garden right now.

    More of the favourite child. I can't believe how vivid those reds have become with just a few weeks of sun:

    Funny to see how bright the new growth colour was at the start of the month, and how quickly it's darkened over the last few weeks:
