    16th September 2020 and new growth is everywhere, due to this unseasonably warm weather.
    Last night I was again asked how my Atropurpureum was looking. All I could say was I would post today so it can be viewed once more.

    27th September 2020 and bright Autumnal sunshine brings the best out of maple leaves. My Atropurpureum was probably the best IMO.

    7th October 2020 and my maples are either turning to Autumn colours, or have new Spring like growth or the leaves are just ready to drop. Such a strange year.
    So after more PM's and requests for my Atropurpureum, here it is this morning.

    14th October 2020 and after some more PM's about my Atropurpureum, here it is. Just going past it's best IMO, but still looking OK.
