    Patrick,

    Thank you so much for the beautiful presentations. The pictures are wonderful and I will look at it often over the winter months.

    I enjoyed it too, thanks. Looks like you've had better luck with fall colors, I didn't have a lot this year. Big exceptions for Ariadne and Okagami, which were brilliant.

    Fall colours here were a little disappointing too .... one was gone before another appeared. The result was that I didn't get any good 'group' photographs. I think it wasn't cold enough and too stormy ... leaves were blown away before they could colour up
    All of the photographs in this show are not necessarily from this past year
    Okagami is always spectacular so far as my own tree is concerned. The variety of strong colour within this one tree never ceases to amaze me. Examples can be seen in Part Two
    Good to hear that you enjoyed the 'show'
    Regards
    Sam

    Sam, my Okagami is also very reliable. Every year I am amazed by its almost flourescent color.

    I enjoyed part two also, just happened to reply to this one!

    cheers,
