    16th June 2021 and the underside of the leaves are not photographed too often, so here is one of mine today.

    It is only visible close up but I love all the different colours, leaf patterns and leaf shapes on my Shirazz/GRD.

    Tiny tree continues to put out bright leaves -- I can't wait till this little guy grows up to look like the gorgeous trees everyone else is posting here!

    11th July 2021 and the colours on my Gwens Rose Delight are such a show at this time of the year.
