Autumn shows it hand.

We planted a Japanese maple in our garden almost 20 years ago and it offers delight during every season.  Spring and autumn are the most spectacular times for this tree to display its beauty.  We have not enjoyed settled weather at all this year until late April.  Since then we have had some splendid autumn weather and perhaps chilly nights, no wind and warm days account for the amazing colour display we have been enjoying.  Members of the household agree that this has been one of the very best displays we have seen on this tree.

These photos were taken on 25th April 2017 and show the branchlets turning fiery red but the leaves a mix of green and coloured.IMG_0186 (800x600)IMG_0188 (800x600)IMG_0190 (800x600)

Three days later I took some more photos.  Look out for these in my next post.

      I was very sceptical about planting a Japanese Maple but we have been well rewarded and this year a real bonus. The small birds in the garden love it too!
