Thanks for the tip N.
This one is on my list D
Hi Lisa, I highly recommend it. Good in all weather conditions.
My mother's near 40 year old shirasawanum 'Aureum' with Kolkwitzia amabilis behind, after some rain showers this evening.
Gorgeous just gorgeous
Here's one in the sun from a couple of days ago:
Oof, work was brutal this week - no energy at all this morning. Just a few pics while I was out just now - I neglected them this week due to how busy I was, and may lose my atropopureum because of it. Given everyone a thorough watering (and it's raining) so hopefully not too much damage resulting...
Beni Otake, Momoiro Koyasan x 2, Peaches & Cream:
Olsen's Frosted Strawberry, Uncle Ghost, Grandma Ghost, Autumn Moon:
Beni Shigitatsu Sawa (upper) & Shigitatsu Sawa (lower), Ukigumo:
(and it's not a maple, but the first of my lilies have begun to bloom. Asiatic Lily Heartstrings!)
Sorry to hear that Xi, but with some rain I'm sure it will bounce back.
Thanks D, I really hope so. Would be such a shame to lose it, so fingers crossed!
Mine are crossed for you also.
Following in the theme of rain this morning by @Xi-feng, here are a few from moments ago in my garden.
Reticulatum, Beni shigitatsu sawa, Uncle ghost, Red Sentinal, Amagi shigure, Musashino, Reticulatum Purple and Ariadne.
Oh @Xi-feng I love your garden so much. I totally can relate to getting too busy to care for them properly but clearly your doing something amazing
Aww, thank you Lisa! Yes, its so frustrating since I'd identified there was an issue and I would need to give them some time on Friday, but I just ended up getting so slammed with work that it didn't happen (which is not an excuse). Totally my fault, but it's the tree that's suffering. Thank you for the kind words, and if the little guy pulls through I will let you all know! :)
Good morning, well on a day when the country has gone football mad, I found tranquility in my garden amongst my maples and they are dry at last, Lol.
They are Anne Irene, Zaaling x2, Aconitifolium, Lileeanne's Jewel, Murasaki Kiyohime, Gwen's Rose Delight and Metamorphosa.
A few photo's on another grey day before the rain comes, looks like I will mostly be watching sport today.
Ariadne, Black lace, Moonrise, Amber ghost & Aureum, Bloodgood, Beni Otake with some odd new leaves and Sazanami with an odd new branch
In-between looking at lovey trees Stuart.....
@Xi-feng how do you find the grow bags over winter? Do they mould? Do you wrap them or bring them inside?
Some more summer leaves and new growth. So far still a mild summer here fortunately. Best of luck to everybody experiencing heat waves at the moment. I hope these pictures can cheer you up just a little bit.
Pictures of Osakazuki 2 x, Hogyoku 2 x, Fireglow 2 x, Orange dream, Seiryu 2 x, Butterfly, Azuma Murasaki, Oregon sunset, Indian summer 2 x, Watnong/Shishigashira/Ryusen, Filigree 2 x, Shirazz, Red dragon.
Even without a heatwave they have cheered me up M.
Beautiful garden thanks for sharing it love being introduced to new trees and seeing how others landscape
Hey Lisa, this will actually be my first winter with the grow bags so we'll see how it goes - I'm considering wrapping them in bubble-wrap so they can drain from the bottom but have some insulation at the sides (they're also off the ground which may help a bit)
...However! This study gives me hope (albeit it's not wholly unbiased) so we shall see what happens, and I'll certainly report back next Spring with how well (or not) my bagged guys are doing....

Thanks so much
Been lazy from the heat but here's some pics from the last few days:
Absolutely beautiful garden love all the mixes you have organized so complementing !
Good morning, well it's a dull day with lots of rain forecast, so I took these just before it started. All the wet weather has been quite good, but for some it's showing that they need some sunshine now.
They are:- Tsuma beni, Arakawa, Beni Otake, Sunset, English Town, Beni tsukasa, Oshu shidare and Mr Sun.
