    Interesting. I like the fact that you’ve done it in the order as they look now.

    Has anyone got multiples of trees and are contemplating thinning their collection? I’m looking for a nicely shaped Osakazuki ;-)

    Lovely maple that I had never heard about.

    It's been a long week selling cars (end of the month blues), but the sun was shining when I got home and took some cheering pics while walking Harry:

    Ahh the fence, lots of hard work a couple of months ago and the black does set the maples off well. Thanks for noticing I.

    Nothing better after a stressful week at work to come home to J. They are looking wonderful and especially my favourite 'Ariadne'. Enjoy your weekend.

    Good morning, I'm not going to mention the white stuff that was everywhere here again last night. So straight on with some trees. Red and green is my theme today.
    Deshojo, Katsura, Inaba shidare, Mikawa Yatsubusa and Starfish.

    'O sakazuki' looks a bit pale. Like others, I think it needs some fert with chelated iron, my water is so hard :

    'Beni hagoromo' 1 and 2 :

    acerp-benihag01_210502a.jpg acerp-benihag02_210502a.jpg

    'Trompenburg' and 'Starfish'. Very similar, except that 'Starfih' has shorter internodes :

    acerp-tromp_210502a.jpg acerp-starfish_210502a.jpg

    'Gwen's Rose Delight' : I've had one for several years, and a small one I bought because it had brown leaves that I didn't see on the first one :

    A small 'Phoenix' :

    acerph03_210502a.jpg

    And a cutting I was given last year, no idea what it can be : small leaves but comparatively long internodes, and red bark :

    Good morning, it's a lovely start to the Bank Holiday Monday here in the UK. But I know what is to come later, so as I walked around my trees with a cup of coffee, I took these few.

    I've just finished the clean up after the storm last night and I felt very much in a ghost mood day today. So here are mine with Baby still lagging behind quite badly. But the warm weather next week will bring it on.
    They are :- Amber, Uncle, Grandma, Purple, First, Sister and lastly, Baby.

    Good morning everyone, it is a very bright start to the day and as it's my wife's birthday, and we are going out for a nice walk, I thought I would post these that I took at 0600hrs.
