    I am going to make a real effort to go to Belgium, it sounds really great. And not too too far for once! :)

    For me the first is my Iijima Sunago - I brought it indoors a few weeks ago from my garage and now it is really moving right along...

    This New England weather has been playing all kinds of games - we had snow on April 1st, go figure.

    Best Regards,
    CSL

    The earliest leafers such as 'Katsura' and the Himes are more or less fully expanded here now. The late season Japanese maples are still in bud, but the mid-season ones are getting interesting:

    can you tell us the names of the trees? It looks like you have some different types of maples in the photos

    can you get a close up of a leaf or two of your first ghost, the color of it is interesting.
