    This is my oldest Japanese maple, purchased as a two year tree 42 years ago. It is in full sun all day long and was moved from a pot for the first time in 2019. Quite nerve wracking tbh.
    It had a lot of root and upper pruning, so still settling down.
    Last photo from Spring 2020.
    Photo today 16th July 2020 showing the greens taking over rapidly.
    I will update this thread regularly to show how this one looks in other seasons.

    And a taster from Autumn 2018 in it's pot.

    An update on my oldest tree in my collection after heavy rain on the 24th July 2020.
    I have it tierd to allow light to penetrate as it can suffer from dead inner branching.
    As you can see the reds have virtually disappeared now. But a pleasing Summer colour none the less.
    You can just make out Emerald lace to the right. The contrast in Autumn is amazing IMO.

    I have posted this one today 3rd August 2020 to show the rapidly changing colour of a 'red' dissectum. This tree will turn to green no matter where it is placed.

    12th August 2020 still very hot and in fact yesterday was the hottest I've ever seen in my garden. Ground temperature hit 48° C by my trees.
    They are all now suffering. But I will continue the Summer diary as requested.
    Really intense heat on my Red dissectum, but as can be seen, not too bad. Far from red now though !!!!

    10th October 2020 and my Red dissectum is dropping it's leaves fast now. Which it has never done before turning the bright orange it normally gives, but what is normal about this year !!! So added this photo before it's just branches only.

    11th October 2020 and I thought I would add this to show just what one day makes in the change of colour to my Red dissectum.

    Thought I would add my Red dissectum in Autumn before it was moved and heavily pruned.

    My first Spring photo of my Red dissectum. It's the 28th April 2021 and after the last photo on January 24th 2021, this is how the patience repays me. It will be 45 years old in June, so I treat it with kid gloves.

    24tj May 2021 and although it has been hammered by the heavy rain, my very old Red dissectum looked lovely this morning. It will bounce back later as it dries btw.

    7th July 2021 and a month of cold and wet weather has suited my Red dissectum perfectly.

    13th April 2022 and one of the oldest in my garden is now making a showing. Two weeks later than previous years, but perhaps it has learnt about the Spring frosts at last....

    26th April 2022 and after a rather cold night, I was up early to check my trees. First call was my Red dissectum. As can be seen, it has fully leafed out now and doing OK.

    23rd June 2022 and the slight appearance of some green in the leaf on my Red dissectum now. In a couple of weeks it will be totally green.
