    5th September 2020 and the diary continues, each day has a new colour on the leaves now. And tbh some rather strange colours this year.
    From early dew to a bright warm morning today, so much to look at. Took me a while to move onto my next photo from my Red feather, lol.

    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.
    So many wanting to buy this one, hence my continued photos. If you do, then be patient, as it is will only give you those lovely colours at certain times of the day as it is so very delicate in appearance; you more often than not see straight through it.

    23rd September 2020 and the first full day of Autumn. We have lots of rain so the dissectums come into their own IMO. Red Feather is so difficult to photograph, this is why I am pleased with this one this morning.

    October 6th 2020 and very wet, but with early morning sunshine it is making my maples look rather pretty IMO. My Red feather even though it is often difficult to photograph is producing some nice shades now.

    1st April 2021 and now those oh so delicate leaves start to emerge. This is a very difficult maple to photograph IMO, as everything about it is the epitome of fine lace and my camera struggles to capture how beautiful it is.

    6th April 2021 and I covered my Red Feather overnight with fleece due to a hard frost coming.

    And here it is an hour later after the fleece was removed. It still got caught. Such a delicate cultivar!!

    It is in tbe griund as most of my trees are, but if anyone is considering buying this one then a pit that can be brought inside during very cold Spring nights is the way forward IMO.

    10th June 2021 and now my Red Feather is fully out. Those deep reds are so difficult to photograph, as it's so delicate.

    A new start to another season for my most delicate of maples. April 7th 2022.
    Often very difficult to photograph as the leaves are so fine.

    7th May 2022 and a difficult one to photograph, as it doesn't show how beautiful this cultivar really is. But here it is first thing this morning.

    23rd June 2022 and after a few very hot days, my Red Feather is doing very well this year. It gets more shade than most of my reds, as it does prefer this.
