    Now all new maples are put in place:
    Just to remember the newly planted area had a shed and the chicken coop and a lot of bushes.
    This was the area last year, between the yellow Catalpa and the big cherry.

    Then we removed all of it in April

    And started digging... 20210504_165757.jpg
    And planting...

    In front of the cherry I have Ukigumo and Amagi shigure

    Ukigumo was quite dishevelled when it arriverd, it was bound for mor than a week that's why I pull the branches outwards for some time.

    This is the group I planted last August, Summergold, Fireglow and on the top Nicolsonii
    plus a new small Palmatifidum 20210609_133410.jpg

    And there is a new Twombleys Red Sentinel between Koto no ito and Summergold
    20210609_133450.jpg
    And from the hill

    20210609_101524.jpg

    I love Summergold 20210609_101355.jpg
    and its red Samaras
    20210609_071746.jpg


    And there is another new group with Vitifolium, Sango kaku and Starfish on the other side

    @sun good afternoon A, so lovely to hear from you. I can't express how impressed I am with your maples and garden.
    You have created something very very special.
    I love it.

    My Beni Hoshi is still in its pot.

    For this year my garden budget is exhausted, but in the future I will remove some of the lawn between the maples and make some pine bark patches with small plants in between, as it is easier for the mowrobot and will probably look better. But for the moment it was the easiest and cheapest option.
    @Acerholic , thank you D, I am really happy, I will watch them now and see if there are awful colour clashes in autumn, Shin Deshojo will probably move to the left side of the hill, when the chicken coop is gone, there is only one chicken legt.

    Something you can show at a later date perhaps A. I will look out for your future posting.

    Enjoyed today's postings very much indeed.

    Now for you to sit back and enjoy.
