That darned wind always comes along just as all the colours kick in. Glad you took lots of pics M
Few pictures from yesterday, so windy today was watching the leaves merrily blowing across the garden !! Just did that in time , lots more though that still need a few weeks, so they are safe for a while ?
It is always a great pleasure to see yours delicious well grown Acer.
The renewal of your collection is successful.
I enjoy yours well exposed pictures and i am grateful always showing the entire form of each tree; we get pleasure not only from their sensationnel shaded colours but also from their lovely shapes.
acer palmatum 'oridono nishiki' is trying to get some fall color.
Good morning, I have taken some more earlier when the heavy cloud was not covering, but it got dark very quickly and I took this photo of my old Green dissectum. Yes the flash went off, but I thought as long as I told everyone that it did, you wouldn't mind me posting it.
It's just starting to turn !!!
My internet connection went down, and it took my provider two weeks to fix it ! I think I'll switch to another one. It took the technicians 10 minutes to fix it, it was a pb in a transfo or something up the street.
I can't catch up with all the messages, but here is the most stunning colours I've seen so far, a shirasawanum from seeds taken from an 'Autumn Moon' :
His brother, taller and with smaller leaves and more divided lobes :
'O-sakazuki', 'Sango Kaku', and an unknown cv :
@AlainK glad to see you back Alain, technology is great until it goes wrong. That's when I call my children!!!
Your garden is looking very colourful, even after the Summer you have had, you must be very pleased.
Very conscious of what @opusoculi said about whole trees, so here is my Red dissectum in it's Autumnal show before it was moved.
Good morning D, I really do like the subtle colours of transition, they are often overlooked in place of the vivid tones later.
The mixture and kaleidoscope of colours makes the garden look so very interesting in early Autumn.
Great Oridino Nishiki D.
Today's pictures between two gusts of wind, I hope there will be some leaves left tomorrow :
'Beni Hagoromo', the first one is now totally red, with one leaf that has reverted to the common shape of A. palm., the other one still mainly green but beginning to change colours :
'Seiryu', 'Koto-no-ito', 'Deshojo', 'Trompenburg', 'O-sakazuki' and 'Ryusen'. I like the colours of 'Ryusen', it makes a change from all the red ones.
I've added the word Maples to the name of this thread, so that you all won't get confused when we decide to show off some other Autumn Colors in a similarly named thread in the How's It Growing forum.
Good morning, here are a few I haven't posted on the other thread this morning.
The wind has stopped blowing and the sky is quite blue and a lot of leaves are now on the ground, but some have survived on my trees, for now at least.
Lovely photo’s guys..
Mine are now 80% dropped already..#tears
here’s Palmatum Emma, new addition albeit small tree and 50% dropped
Emma is pretty R. Mine have dropped a lot after yesterday's battering. Saturday is going to be bad aswell. Friday for Westonbirt sounds the best bet.
Few more pictures from this week , leaves are really coming off now with the winds!! still have a few which won't turn though until November.
I like 'Emma' a lot, I think I need to get that in here.
Those are some gorgeous maples, Mark! Can't believe they look so good after your season.
We had a big rain and wind episode, but I thought I'd get out and grab a few dissectums, which are all going at the same time.
'Inabe shidare', and something else that comes from the garden in fall besides color.
'Emerald Lace', new plant
'Garnet', another new one without many leaves left. Plus a seedling from hagaromo, (almost dissected) in front of 'Villa tarranto'
'Dentelle de Binch' really a great plant but hard to photograph. It outgrew the pot and was rooted in the earth, in spite of being repotted in June.
A couple with 'Inabe shidare' in front of 'Orangeola' (just to get Sam in there). The big tree is A. triflorum
Finally a couple featuring 'Pink Filigree'
You can't believe it, makes two of us !! The ones that really suffered are ones that were re potted last year, great spring colours then came the winds and just knocked them for six, but i at least i know they will be back next year and stronger just hope we don't get more bad weather though?
What a wonderful Autumnal morning here in Central Southern England, hoping it's just as nice for R @dicky5ash at Westonbirt today.
Thought I would go for a few reds in my garden atm.
Just took a picture of my friends Acer palmatum green, yes green!!! It's 50 years old btw.
Acer (campbellii var.) sinense. The mix of green and red is so luminous :
Shirasawanum 'Autumn Moon', Koto-no-ito, Seiryu, Butterfly, unidentified from seed, Bi-hoo, Beni hagoromo, and Acer buergerianum with Deshojo behind :
PS : the 'Bi-hoo' is not as green as in the photo, it's a "butter-yellow".
And I forgot the A. pseudosieboldianum var. takesimense I got from Emery. Compared to others, it is very healthy, no leaf scortch, no leaf spots, he seems to like its new home. A photo taken this afternoon, in the shade, but against the light, and the same on August 18th, from the other side :
My japonicum 'Vitifolium' after the borer
Sister ghost...Getting better by the year.
'Coral Pink' this evening and a pic just a moment ago from the side of the house that caught my eye.
