    Yours has a lovely warmth about it Xi. Have you stopped staring at this morning !!!? I know I would struggle getting any work done with that in view.

    More Moonrise - I can't stop staring or taking photos, it seems!

    Blatant favouritism of Big Moonrise:

    Thanks Lisa - this one is in my 'full sun' patch that gets sun to around 16:00; my smaller Moonrise that's coloured with the usual greens and reds gets sun to about 13:00 so there may be something to the differing light levels resulting in different colours!

    Here's my little green Moonrise. Not as flashy as my big golden one, but a very good tree on its own merits:

    Big Moonrise has gone almost uniformly pale yellow, but there's still some hidden peach colour in the shaded areas if you know where to look:

    17th April 2024 and my Moonrise is doing its thing. I just love the droopy appearance of the leaves as it leafs out.
