Japanese Maple – FOTD ā€“ 05/24/19

We had a couple of truly lovely days, so I took some pictures. I should have taken more pictures, but for at least a part of the day, I was helping trim the garden. We have a ground cover that has taken over the fence to the degree that I wasn’t sure I’d be able to open or close the gate.

And the Japanese maple looks so lovely in the sunshine and since we raised it from when it was a seedling, I’m proud of how beautiful it has become.

I love the shape of the leaves!

  1. Sometimes the leaves are as good as flowers….


  2. They are my all-time favourite little trees. Since ever when I lived in a ‘garden flat’ I had a tiny red Jap maple planted in a large pot. Not since I live in France. Never even seen one. But there will be a time when I’ll be having one again, when back in Switzerland. I’m a bit jealous that you could raise one from a sapling!


  3. Arn’t the Japanese Maples beautiful. I bought one when we bought our appartment and it has been in the garden now for 20 years. Once it seemed to be losing branches, but it recovered and is as bigger as ever now.


    • We got ours from my cousin who grows them in Maryland. We brought it home in a bucket and planted it. It took a while to get sturdy enough, but now it’s a real tree. It’s not a red one, but when all the other leaves have fallen from the trees, it turns scarlet. My favorite tree šŸ˜€
