    That is a very impressive specimen, 1955 vintage I believe !!? The dissectum is not too shabby either Alain.

    As Alain is in front of a wonderful green dissectum, I thought what a coincidence as I took this of mine showing flowers this morning.

    Right, <LOL> Emery told me that he would like to see more photos with people and maples, so I thought this was the opportunity.

    An excellent idea by Emery, it is nice to put a face to a name.

    Thanks Alain, as you say bit of a mugshot, lol.
    But we can now put some faces to names here now.
    There was a really nice one the other day of J @dangerine49 with Maggie. So that's three and we all have seen Emery on his video, so that's 4. Plus those of us on the Zoom MS meetings, means we are all getting to know each other a little better.
    A good idea by You and E. I hope everyone joins in.

    I need pictures of people (and maples) for the web site. Can I snag yours D? That's a good one.

    Any photos featuring children or under-forties would be particularly welcome! Cheers.

    Isobel is outstanding in the spring, highly recommended. Will see what it does over the summer etc.

    Beni Maiko obviously amazing too right now

    Flavescens such a bright yellow green, very similar to Jordan

    Have you got Isobel next to Flavescens Luke ? I think they would be a great combo.

    Both are brilliant combos Luke. It is fun when they are in pots that you can play around with different set ups. But careful lifting the heavy ones atm......

    You know me... It’s my one true passion. Second to my children, they are what I love most in the world!

    The colours were a bit different last year, much darker.

    I remember your photos. It is one that might convince me to perhaps add just one to my collection in 2021.

    Be careful ! Even when left in a pot, it develops very quickly, mine has more than doubled in a year. I suppose that when in the ground, it slows down after a couple of years.
