    I'm really enjoying how the colours are developing here - that touch of salmon-pink on the tips of the leaves is new and lovely.

    I loved the bright pumpkin oranges of this little tree last year. I'm happy to welcome it back now that it's waking up, and I can't wait to see what it does this year:

    25th April 2022 and mine is now starting. Way behind @Xi-feng and @Ultraman, but it's joining in at last.

    30th April 2022 and I was asked yesterday on a PM, how slow are my maples to leaf out this year. So here is the evidence. Answer, 'The slowest year ever'.

    19th May 2022 and even after a severe storm last evening, my Autumn Moon just cheered me up this morning.

    This tree was so consistently orange last year, and this year we get big happy yellow leaves. Weird little thing!

    28th May 2022 and a lot of strong drying winds the last couple of days here in Southern England, so I wanted to show how my Autumn Moon coped.

    Going from big happy yellow leaves to big happy orange-tinged ones. Nice!

    Are we going green or is it just the light this morning? Not sure!
