One of my favourite garden specimen trees, especially when they first burst into leaf…

What delicate leaves! I especially like the photo of the shadows on the fence. A dramatic effect!

Thank you, I was trying to find a different way to show off the leaves.
I liked that one also. Very clever. Looks very Japanese.
Those are rather splendid Andrew.
Thanks Sheree, they don’t like hot sun so do well in north of England! I bought most of them from ALDI for just a few pounds!

I have a few and they are my favourite plants in the garden. Always a pleasure to see those first fresh, vibrant leaves.
I’m envious. My two lovely Acers seem to be shrivelling up. I think maybe it’s the wind we’ve had as I can’t think of any other reason.
They prefer the shade I think.
I do love a god acer!
You and me too Sue!
Nice shots and great shadows.
They are such lovely shapes, aren’t they? And fragile! 🙂 🙂 So, where will be the first place you go when the curfew lifts?
Not sure Jo, I have switched our April flights to September to Gibraltar and we will go to Cadiz and switched June for February 2021 to go to Lisbon.
These were very cheap flights so it doesn’t matter if we lose them.
We are not making any new bookings until we see what the state of the travel industry is after all of this.
What about you?
It all hinges around family. Haven’t rebooked anything yet. 😦 😦 Will probably be UK in August again because they can’t get time off to come here.
I quite like this being at home. I might be cured of the travel bug. We were talking last night about potentially staying in UK in 2021 and seeing more of our own country.
Quite the collection, Andrew. They are quite pretty trees. I can see why you like them! –Curt
I do love an acer, especially in Autumn! Thank you for a cheering post.
Thanks Stella, I’m not thinking about Autumn just yet!
A good set
You gave me a new word! I’ve never called them acers before. These are great photos, and yes, I love the shadows too. Such wonderful leaves cast wonderful shadows.
What do you call them?
