    Is there really a tree called 'Brigada Revolution' ? I can hardly believe it...

    What did the person who named it have in mind ? A nostalgy of the international brigades fighting against facism ? A reminder of his time in the army when his platoon was asked to turn 180° ? A suggestion from a Brigadoon native who was sick and tired of being considered as a backward villager ? Any other private joke ?...

    I wonder... ;°)

    The talk about how dry it is, is getting quite worrying. Meant to be some rain here through the night, but it amounted to nothing at all. I still have 4 that are very, very slow to leaf out. But others that have woken up these last few days, thank goodness. So here are a few.

    Is that your original Milligan, D?

    No it's a replacement N from Barthelemy. Very happy to have one here again though.

    My Barthélemy Milligan, perhaps it's just getting more sun.

    Tsuma gaki - I love the pale delicate colours of the second flush leaves - something very oriental!
    Emma - I love this cultivar

    'Brigada Revolution' was selected and named by the late Jean-Pierre Hennebelle. I don't know if there is a connection with Vasterival as with so many of his plants. I always assumed a political affiliation, but not sure. Do you know his son Jean-Loup, who now runs the nursery with his brother? Possible he might know. We have another good sycamore selected by Hennebelle called Miracle Rose, but I haven't photographed it yet this year.

    Brigada Revolution is a lot like 'Prince Camille de Rohan' in coloring, though a little lighter, with almost tan cream cut tops into olive green, and very deep purple undersides. The main difference is that it stays small, whereas Prince Camille is a huge tree, way too large for most gardens.

    Here's another batch from yesterday. These are mostly in the south part of the garden rather than the aceretum. Still mostly maples though, haha.

    Thanks Rich! Your maples are looking awesome too. We've had some warmer weather this spring, without too much wind, which has really pleased a lot of plants. Now all we need is some rain mixed in!

    Still plenty more to post from yesterday, heh.

    Thanks Lisa - it seems to be growing very much in a spreading form

    Ugh, still testing positive (and feeling like it) after 7 days... well the advantage is I can work on labeling photos... so many photos from yesterday... not nearly done. Here's the next batch. For the last 2 of Jordan, the sun went in; the plant is really a chameleon, it looks very yellow in sun (I think there's one such in the next batch).

    Oh dear sorry to hear that..I dodged it for 2years and got it a month ago..was far from a light touch cold as I’d hoped...I know others on here have experienced similar. Hope you’re tiptop soon.

    Sorry to hear that E. It took me 2 weeks to get a negative result. It is a slow process I'm afraid. You'll get there. But what beautiful garden to suffer Covid in. Looking absolutely gorgeous.
    Hope you feel better soon.

    Very interesting how each country handles COVId. They don’t test us here after we get a positive they say we can test positive for up to 3 months. If we are vaccinated and are positives we can go about our life after 5 days of first symptoms and no fever and symptoms are mild. Plus our family doesn’t have to quarantine. I just had COVId and was granted rights to go back to work and I did all this past week but my asthma has become unmanageable. Way worse than when I had fever and other symptoms. So bizarre. All of it. Hope you get better fast. I loved being home in my garden when I was sick it was very healing.

    Thanks for the wishes guys, it's much appreciated. The big stroke of luck is that Adele didn't get it, which could have been a real problem.

    I don't want to get into the contentious issue of how our various countries have handled the pandemic, but I will note that, although you can say what you like about Macron here, virtually no one lost a job, couldn't pay rent or get supplies in France. I thought it was pretty cool that a couple of days ago the gubbmint sent me a text offering to help take care of my children, or do my shopping!

    Derek, thanks as always for the pics, I really enjoy your Filigree; I thought it was the same as 'Emerald Lace', but a trip to the book shelf shows me that's not at all so! Added at the top of my want list.

    Funny enough I took a few photos this morning including my Filigree - stays lime green all summer, unlike Emerald Lace - similar mound growth habit, but a much slow grower compared to the Emerald monster. I keep it pretty shaded. I got this one from Pat at Hippopottering about 4 years ago - was a 6 year old tree back then

    That's some luck, thanks! I don't know where I picked up the misconception, but looking at D's pics (and now yours) it's obviously a much different plant. As you'll see below in my next batch, I'm now trying to get green dissectums (and a few reds) in as understory plantings between more mature upright maples, along with some other companion plantings also. You make me wonder if the 2 Emerald Lace I have growing towards this purpose might not get too big? I have larger and sunnier gaps but...

    One comment on one of these pics, the Orange Dream and Villa Tarranto is the view south from our bedroom window, the maples frame rhododendrons and a pink hawthorn tree, just coming into flower now. This all looked a bit pokey in the beginning, but as the maples have grown in it's become one of (I think) the most successful groups in the entire garden. I'll try to remember to take a pic in the next week.

    Enough labeling work, haha, now to get outside. Still working on the 6th, but the garden changes so fast during this season that I've already taken more pictures.

    I saw an Emerald Lace in Batsford (I think) that was truly enormous..my containerised (in zinc bath lol) Emerald Lace which is about 15 years old is about 2.5m x 2m, long and wide..I can’t imagine how big it would have got in the ground lol Mine is in full sun, rather robust compared to Filigree.. Emma is another nice one..reddish and greens and Ellen is another
