    28th August 2020 and the ground is incredibly wet for the time of year. Just had more hail stones and my maples that are heavy in leaf do not like it one bit.
    New growth and some old wood not looking too good IMO. But that is the only small problem seen this season on my Summer gold.

    September 3rd 2020 and Autumn is very quickly upon us now. But new growth!!? Yes there is !!
    Such a dark cloudy day today, that any colours are very welcome.
    A dull day and my Summer gold is making some cheer in my garden. Still new growth,when will this stop!!?

    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.
    The great success story of 2020 IMO. And it keeps going on and on.

    27th September 2020 and bright Autumnal sunshine brings the best out of maple leaves and is there a time of the year when Summer Gold does not perform; I don't think so!!!!

    5th October 2020 and very ominous dark skies that made my flash go off when taking photos this morning. But no flash on my Summer Gold, just pure colour.

    14th October 2020, my Summer Gold is just glowing in my garden atm. If you want a maple that will give these bright colours and handle full sun, then go for this cultivar. You will not be disappointed.

    20th April 2021 and here we go for another great year with my Summer Gold. This is a success story for maple cultivars. It loves the full afternoon sun in my garden. I will of course post more updates over the coming months as proof.

    This is one of those trees that I 'blame' this forum for -- I fell in love with some of the pictures on this thread and just had to have one.

    (I hope to 'blame' you all for many more trees still to come!)
