Ooo, pretty. Which one is it, Kate?
I have got the "want-and-need-it"s (as my daughter used to demand when she was a 2-year-old) where acers are concerned. Don't think I have room for any more though... the winter greenhouse is full!

Thanks Ange. Unfortunately I’m not too’s been on the lower bund for many years. I know it’s a Palmatum but apologies not sure of the actual name. It’s doing well, but, very slow to grow. Possibly the position as it’s quite vertical.

Thanks Sheila! It’s looking good now in it’s autumn colour.

Sue! How did you guess??!! Have to admit, I think the previous shower had helped give it a nice sheen!

It sure is Rose! I can see it from one of the windows and it’s standing out on the lower bund nicely!
