    After what as been officialy the warmest summer in England since 1910 the trees are certainly begining to shut down now earlier than i have previously seen before , after a never ending few months of constant hot weather and even more watering than usual we are now begining to see some interesting colours starting to appear on numerous cultivars , even one's that are usually plain are showing signs of colouring at this early stage.

    The nights are getting shorter and cooler now and the trees are responding nicely.

    Just goes to show that a few months of good sunny warm weather will give the trees that extra boost they have been lacking over these past few years , not just the JMs but all my other plants around the garden have all shown stunning flower blooms and new branch/budding growth this year.

    Hopefully everyone will have a good showing this year and look forward to seeing some great pictures shortly.

    Seeing some very unusual/unexpected colours this year due to the warm weather ?

    Pic 1/ Hogyoku leaves 2/ Toyama nishiki 3/ Filligree usually a yellow /gold colour starting in October, this year a it's a vivid red and orange , my other Filigree which is in a more secluded spot is already starting to change but into it's normal colour of yellows/golds.

    Pic 4/ Sano kaku never this intense at this time would expect to see a more bright yellow hue but later more into October than now.

    Last three pics are shigure batu , japonicum harvest moon , and sharps pygmy
