    My mom is definitely where my love of gardening came from! We actually got into Japanese Maples at the same time during the middle of the pandemic, we love to cruise nurseries together and we both love Mikawas now. :)

    My friend, Riley Stark who is the urban forester for the city of Olympia Washington gave me a Bloodgood for my house warming gift, just brought it over and planted it in my front yard himself! Thats what started it all back in October 2019.

    I am not completely sure but this is how I got it 10 years ago, so I am guessing 15+ years now.

    4th April 2022 and the lime greens and pinks on my Mikawa yatsubusa this morning made me very happy indeed. So I thought I would share the joy.

    My Mikawa Yatsubusa looked so scabby all last year I wasn't really keen on taking pictures of it. That fresh green on the spring leaves makes it look like a whole other tree - we'll see how it gets on later in the year, but right now I'm enjoying it a lot:

    24th April 2022 and I waited a little longer since my last posting to show my Mikawa yatsubusa with the leaves fully open. They are looking quite lush now.

    My Mikawa is holding up surprisingly well and hasn't fallen back into the scabby state it was in for most of last year (touch wood!). Making the most of it while it looks good!

    Starting to lose a bit of that fresh spring prettiness, but still doing rather well:

    I know what you mean Xi, but with June rain, what's not to like about this cultivar at any time of the year.
