I know I have featured this only a few weeks ago but what a difference now. This photo was taken on Oct 8th and it is still looking radiant today the 15th.
Between these dates it was voted Tree of the Month ( Autumn Colour Theme) by members in our Club’s Advanced section but I hasten to add that there were very few entries, I think the gales had blown most members autumn colours away.
The trees are Acer Purpuream purchased for a few pounds from Morrisions Supermarket three years ago, I think the reason for their brilliant display this year is that throughout the hot summer weather they were well sheltered from any direct mid day sun, in fact most sun during that very hot spell so I lost very little by scorching, three watering a day helped.
The pot is one of my own home made slabs.
