    Very nice colour gradation on the aconitifolium, looks like a water color ;-)

    Thanks Alain - that tree has been under the canopy of another and has had much shade..only dappled sun..my other one was in fully sun and produced bright red colours but the leaves have all dropped on that one.

    Big storm yesterday evening, thunder and lightning, wind and such a hevy rain that I couldn't see the back of the garden.
    This afternoon, full sun and smthg like 22°C.
    Some trees are almost naked because of the pounding rain (at first I thought it was hail) and the wind, but those that are still green and others are OK :

    Acer pentaphyllum has pink tones, like last year, but less intense so far :

    acer-penta_221021a.jpg acer-penta_221021b.jpg

    Acer buergerianum seedlings :

    acerb-div_221021a.jpg

    It's a pity the tips of the leaves of Acer cappadocicum are burnt, but there aren't many in this thread, so :

    acer-cappadoc_221021a.jpg

    Trompenburg (a valiant one !) :

    acerp-tromp_221021a.jpg

    'Sango kaku' yellow colours. The air-layer of the Ginkgo next to it still has some green, and is a bit taller than me (1.775 m. / 5 feet 10 inches) :

    acerp_sangok02_221021a.jpg

    This morning, there was about 5 cm (2 inches) of rain water in a plastic basin I left outside. When I got closer, I could see a small frog swimming frantically but unable to climb the plastic sides of the basin. So I freed it. It's common to see small toads in a garden, but it's the first time I've seen a frog. Was it brought by the rain ? <LOL>

    grenouille_221021a.jpg

    Last but not least, my little O. Dream. The colours are really fantastic, perhaps the best combination of colours I've seen this year :

    acerp_orangedream01_221021a.jpg acerp_orangedream01_221021b.jpg

    Alain K.

    PS : there's also this one that I can't remember the name. Any suggestions so I can label it again ?

    I always thought Trompenburg was rather tough, but it completely wilted this year in the dry sun. I think it's alive (defoliated without making new leaves) but I'm sure a smaller one would be cooked. Good to see someone pull one through, Rich.

    Here are some more, starting on 15 Oct.

    A. sieboldianum 'Kinu gasa yama', lost some top but otherwise did well (as might be expected from this tough species
    20221015_121948_v1.jpg 20221015_122000_v1.jpg 20221015_122010_v1.jpg 20221015_122018_v1.jpg

    Dwarf palmatum, starting to turn. It has some verticillium problems but is very well established.
    20221015_122059_v1.jpg

    Umegae
    20221015_122132_v1.jpg 20221015_122145_v1.jpg

    Variegated selection, most of the light part burned off though.
    20221015_122321_v1.jpg

    'Keikan zan' starting to turn
    20221015_122433_v1.jpg

    As are Nicholsonii, A. miyabei and A. carpinifolium (which will have the dead top removed soon)

    A. griseum 'Golden Lucky' is earlier than the other griseums
    20221015_122556_v1.jpg

    Green Hornet, Koto no ito starting
    20221015_122625_v1.jpg 20221015_122714_v1.jpg

    A. x circinatum 'Morton' is very good, really sun resistant. The end of distylum's yellow, and Osakazuki's north face
    20221015_122803_v1.jpg

    Mystery Lithocarpa, A. saccharum 'Louisa Lad' getting started. But the nights aren't cold enough here for sugar maples to show well
    20221015_122911_v1.jpg 20221015_123102_v1.jpg

    Mikawa yatsubusa is in full sun, and not particularly well established.

    Might be A. sinense? (BTW went to the PO this afternoon, sent colissimo sans sig).

    Trying to finish up the photos from 15/10, I guess there were a lot. A few more than fit here, as it happens.

    A rubrums: October Glory x 3, a NJ selection, Tilford x 2

    Miko wishing the Acers behind the house would get on with it, as I do.
    20221015_124708_v1.jpg

    Tharandt, just a little color this year

    Kumoi nishiki, burnt caramels
    20221015_125012_v1.jpg 20221015_125031_v1.jpg

    It will be nice when this oak, Q. myrsinifolia, gets bigger. It is growing well now, anyway.
    20221015_125416_v1.jpg

    Green Trompenburg
    20221015_125555_v1.jpg

    A. elegantulum (thanks Alain!)

    Selection of A. palmatum

    Aconitifolium at peak

    A. griseum looking lovely.

    Vitifolium at peak

    A. truncatum, very pretty but only lasted a day or so, all done now.
    20221015_130541_v1.jpg 20221015_130608_v1.jpg

    Waterfall, graft finally healing. What a mess this one was.

    Finally, this is how that day finished. Took the dog for a walk, hit pay dirt, spent 3 hours prepping, cooking, freezing.

    Ha! Not a"Girolle" and no "Trompettes des Morts" ? You Normand ! <LOL>

    I'm jealous. So far, no mushrooms here, except in a couple of the pots I watered every day in the summer.

    The photo I love best :

    I imagine a cartoonist animating the scene, and what the cat might think.

    Then, will it get closer to the house (F.O.O.D.) or get around until he gets grey (French saying : "La nuit, tous les chats sont gris")

    So true! There are trompettes around, or were, but we have never found them. I'm not sure if that's down to skill (or lack of, probably) or location. Girolles, on the other hand, have become rarer over the last 10 years or so, and are now rarely seen. I think the summers are just too hot.

    As for Miko, the poor fellow, it's hard to know what's in his mind... He may have been thinking of moles, as he does hunt them, and there's currently one lurking around this area. He's a strange tom, very large, an inveterate fighter, but also very affectionate (demandingly so as cats are), until the switch flips and he decides to take a chunk out of you. It's like the static builds up, and Bad Miko appears. He's given me a few really deep bites, hard to know when they're coming... He showed up as a mean kitten, probably abandoned and abused, (since he knew how to use a litter box, he didn't seem quite wild), and we were sort of morally obliged to keep him. He's a good hunter, anyway.

    Lovely M. Lost mine through the Summer heat, so to see one doing well is really great.

    It was sad to hear of your losses this summer D, it is never nice to lose plants. Fortunately I had a good year and don't think I lost any to the heat. A couple partially defoliated when they missed a scheduled watering during the hottest part of the heatwave, but they seem OK and I am optimistic they will come back strong next year.

    Some more pics, Seiryu x2:

    18°, what à chance !
    Here in South-Ouest of France, we have 18° during night and 25° to 29° in the afternoon with no rain in october.
    The forecast call for one week or 10 days of the same temperatures, and no rain at all.
    The leaves scortch kraft ending october before colouring.
    Fall 2022 is pretty much done for ****ed. En français: c’est raté, c’est rappé, c’est foutu.

    That is crazy temperatures, no wonder our trees are struggling to cope. But over here the warmer days means no heating to put on. So that is a bonus.

    Nice pics @LoverOfMaples but that Beni komachi is an ex Beni komachi, totally reverted. The consensus seems to be they don't come back once that far gone.

    Thanks @maf. I noticed a little while ago when I was checking the 'Beni komachi' page. It sucks, I might get another and keep it in check. I cant remember if i bought it revert or what.

    Smaller 'Hubbs Red Willow' way ahead of the larger though still passing through the orange/red phase, last year didn't make it to red.

    At least half of the 30+ different Japanese maples in my backyard can be seen in this photo:

    Absolutely gorgeous @kines and the photo of your Viridis would give the most photographed maple at The Portland Japanese garden a run for its money. Ok a different cultivar, but I think you get my point.

    Here are some maples pictured on 17 Oct, except 'Shoryu no tsume' which was taken the following day. (Google translate tells me that "shoryu no tsume" means "common style nail", but as a NYer I just hear some guy, having run into my car (or something) flashing some cash and saying "Sure, you no sue me." And he's probably right, at that.)
