    1st September 2020 and the very first Autumn dew arrives after a rather cold night. No apologies for posting this one the day after the last. Too pretty to not IMO.

    13th September 2020 and the sun is shining and it is getting warmer and warmer once again. So I hope my photo conveys this lovely near Autumn day. Ultra close up today of this beautiful cultivar 'Lionheart'.

    19th September 2020 and Summer is ending this weekend according to forecasts. Bright early morning sun is still helping maples in my garden to look nice. So much colour on my Lionheart today.

    23rd September 2020 and the first full day of Autumn. We have lots of rain so the dissectums come into their own IMO. And what a difference can be seen in just one day.

    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.
    Possibly my favourite dissectum in my garden atm is my Lionheart. Just so many colours!!!

    26th April 2021 and my very first posting of my Lionheart for the start of another season. I wanted to get this shot, as when they just start to open, I feel they are just so wonderful.

    This tree has really been getting my attention lately. I moved it so I can observe it more.

    27th May 2021 and my little Lionheart is getting the colours that make this maple so special. A lot darker than D @LoverOfMaples, but they are a continent apart....

    29th May 2022 and my Lionheart is now transitioning to Summer. This is such a mellow looking cultivar.
