    13th August 2020 and the heatwave has now taken it's toll. New growth and old all suffering.
    But as promised I'm adding these photos to show how cultivars cope at different times of the year and in different conditions. Some definatly not pretty, so have not put them on the Cheering ourselves up with maples thread !!!!
    This is where they should be.
    My Mikazuki is such a pretty maple, but the heat has now almost completely destroyed the leaves. Defoliation in next few days !!

    Well its the beginning of September 2020 and the dew is appearing on the leaves. Together with the fast changing colours, it's that time of year of joy in the maple garden.
    It is lovely to see the new growth, but in September it is a little worrying.
    I will enjoy it whist I can.

    7th September 2020 and in Southern England it is getting warmer once again. So surprised to see my maples with such dry leaves this morning. But this year is so very different for so many reasons!!?
    The new growth have opened and giving a wonderful display and possibly more to come this week on my Mikazuki.

    12th September 2020 and believe it or not, new growth is everywhere in my garden together with Autumn colours emerging. Temperatures of 31°C expected in a couple of days.
    A close up as requested. The reticulation is so evident on my Mikazuki as we approach Autumn.

    14th September 2020 and although it is going to be hot later, a lovely early morning dew was on my maples.
    Mikazuki with late new growth also today.

    1st October 2020 and the colours are coming. Plus of course with this crazy year, new growth. Though when I saw these new leaves this morning with the new buds for next year on my Mikazuki, I thought all is well atm at least for now !!!!

    12th October 2020 and my Mikazuki is now showing what it should do at this time of the year, the mellow tones that are so different to the vibrant colours of others. I have been asked why I like this, my answer is that I like to have different tones and shades in my collection.
