    It looks very attractive where you have it planted next to the hydrangea, neighbouring maple and house colours behind.

    6th April 2022 and after some bad overnight frosts my First Ghost has started to leaf out very slowly, but it is starting.

    Well, mine is leafing out also, but it needs a pruning job. I let some of the branches get too long. Now 20 years in the ground and quite a big boy. I have been meaning to get some photos. Today and tomorrow the sun will be out and no rain. So I will endeavor to take time from the storm clean-up to get a few photos.

    Look forward to seeing a photo of yours S. It must be a very mature specimen at 20 years in the ground.

    Much smaller than Alex's but looking like a cloud of ghosts at this stage of spring.

    30th April 2022 and people ask why I have so many ghosts. Well I hope my photo gives the answer. They are just wonderful to stare at.

    12th June 2022 and only a few days since my last posting, but with the weather going to get very hot, I thought why not add a photo before it struggles.
