    Well, a switch has been flipped and my little Osakazuki has started going into autumn reds for real. Close-up of the colour-change, and a pic of the whole tree (accompanied by one of my gardening-buddies)

    I think it’s going to give a dazzling show in a few weeks.

    As they say, 'if you've got it, flaunt it,' right? I certainly will if my Osakazuki gets anywhere near as pretty as Alain's this year! ;)

    After all the grumbling, these colours have been worth the wait. Commencing showing-off :)

    Looking forward to seeing photos if you get a chance, D -- I'm glad I took those pictures yesterday; the heavy rain and wind all night/morning today has stripped so many leaves away from mine, the poor tree is looking distinctly ragged now the sun's come back out. Such a shame that those lovely colours only blaze for a short time when the weather is uncooperative!
