    August 29th 2020 and Autumn colours are very fast approaching. It even feels like we are in October today rather than August. 7° C at the moment.
    New shoots everywhere on my Otome Zakura, such a mixed up year!!! But this is looking very pretty IMO.

    4th September 2020 and the days seem to be getting shorter and shorter, which is a bit too fast for me. Busy time of the year in the garden for us maple growers, with less daylight !!!
    A morning with no dew or rain, but colours now popping up everywhere!!
    I had to show the new growth that was starting last week. Today so bright and cheerful.

    8th September 2020 and the heat is returning, but very cloudy. My maples will enjoy this as long as there is no more new growth.
    The interest in this one has amazed me tbh, but when you see the leaves on this cultivar close up, I can understand why.
    I love it and seems a lot of others do also.

    9th September 2020 and new growth springing up everywhere. It so warm and today at 0800hrs it was 18°C.
    Tried to get the same shot but with early morning dew. Think it worked!!

    20th September 2020 and new growth plus some strange colouring on my maples now. Why is this happening so very late this year, shooting everywhere !!!

    8th October 2020 and I wanted to show the new growth on my Otome Zakura since the last posting. Its still doing well, but as we get closer to November, I am sure we will see some damage.
