    Aesthetically I think it's perfect Xi.

    Those reds are starting to deepen a bit now. Looking forward to a bit later into summer when they turn almost purpleish against the bright red new growth:

    I'm training mine for height, but I hope you don't change a thing with yours Xi. It's perfect.

    Thank you, D! Normally I'm all about height too, but this one has such a lovely lean to the main trunk I'm just leaving it alone and letting it do exactly what it wants. It seems to have a plan in mind - who am I to get in the way?

    Those colours are starting to darken into summer. This one turned almost purple last year: I wonder what it'll do in its new spot:

    Feels like it's filled out and is making the most of its sunnier spot this year:
