    I want it, I want it! I REALLY want it.

    Oh, crud. The madness is showing again. Must recite the mantra...

    May I accept the limbs I cannot reach,
    Have the courage to cut correctly where I should,
    The restraint to leave well enough alone,
    and the wisdom to know the difference.
    So that by taking it one tree at a time,
    Every day, in every tree, it will get better and better.

    I'm not sure that's how it's supposed to go, what was the MA mantra again?

    If you get a chance, post a pic of that green snowflake - I can't find any pics anywhere. We just had our first freezing temps here, so my buying season is definitely over.

    Your wish is my command!! Green Snowflake pic is from the grower - the leaves were gone on mine already. I'm also including pics of 'Ebony', 'Okina' (the last leaf!), 'Gaki no sugi' and 'Takyo yatsubusa' (in that order). *sigh* Time to start putting together next year's wish list...

    Alex,

    I love your Italian English!! :-)

    Somehow your emotions come through better than I can usually express in my standard English. I wish I could see your Aceretum - must be spectacular!


    Ciao!!

    I'm soooo jealous. I want more maples, too!

    You all are a bad influence with your talk of the lovely world of internet buying. My resistance is crumbling. If I give in to temptation I know it will be all over for me!

    Sad, but true....

    I keep coming back to this thread to make me feel better after spending money on more maples. I console myself by saying, "At least I only bought 4 trees this time, not 40 like some people!"

    Kaitan, I want to see the "wide" shot of how the heck you are arranging all these maples. BTW, are you using a drip irrigation system, or how are you handing the water chores?

    Paxi,

    I'm in the process of planting a number of my trees, but will try to get you some pics. I still have a couple of loads of top soil to bring in and spread out, so its going slower than I wanted.

    Watering chores - well, I just spent a fortune putting in water pipes on about 1/2 my garden area (and future garden area)!! I had to bore under the driveway and all kinds of fun gymnastics! I'm estimating this area comprises about an acre. I put in 9 in-ground water spickots that I can attach hoses to or use as junction boxes for a true irrigation system. Will have to wait til next year to do the other 1/2 of the garden because I'm flat broke now!

    Since most of my trees were not in the ground I made a little "nursery" under some dogwood trees this summer and had a sprinkler hose set on a timer. I also ran hoses all over creation to my other trees planted in the ground using the same arrangement. It was really messy looking, but it worked.

    I don't have plans to use drip irrigation, as I've read that this actually increases root competition in a woodland setting. The mature trees will eventuall "discover" those little islands of moisture created by the drip system and send out agressive roots to claim the water. If you water the entire area, then there aren't any areas wetter than another and root cometition is decreased. I have a deep well, so the amount of water I use doesn't cost me anything to speak of.

    I'll still have a substantial number of trees in pots to over-winter, so I'm building a "greenhouse" on the back of my garden studio using bricks for the floor and wood beams and thick plastic for the structure. Just need something to keep the wind and bitter cold off, and a place I can put my grafts and seedlings this winter. This week I had to move a bunch of trees into the Garden Studio because we had a nasty freeze! I crammed as may as I could fit in there - even put some in the sink, on counters, etc. etc. (see pics). It will be great to have a little greenhouse so I don't have to do that again!
