Very nice Sandra, is this your new Acer.

2 Jul, 2010

 

thanx dawn, no this one i have had a good few years in a pot but now in ground this year, my new one is orange dream but its got wind burn so may have to move that one to,

2 Jul, 2010

 

They are susceptible to wind burn, arent they. This one is lovely. looks perfect.

2 Jul, 2010

 

this one has been great every year dawn, i love the dark rich leaves when the sun hits it, im sure my other will be much better in border, more sheltered ;o))

2 Jul, 2010

 

Im sure it will Sandra. Looks like the red one is a bit hardier. Do you know the variety of this one.

2 Jul, 2010

Beautiful San. I just love Acers. My red one has suffered a bit this year, due to the weather. Having said that, it has always been exposed to the elements, earlier this year hubby moved it to be more sheltered, and it's got windburn on some of its leaves. It did better where it was... :o)

3 Jul, 2010

 

thanx linda, its disheartning when they get burned isnt it, my orange dream is more burnt dream now with all the wind here, not sure where i can put it though ;o((

4 Jul, 2010

 

Love the set-up.Its brilliant.

We suffer from bad winds here when they start, because we're on a bit of a hill and we have a valley running both sides of us. My red acer has always been out in the open, but as the weather was getting so bad, hubby put it against the wall under my large green one. You can just about see it on my 'Avatar?' pic, under the green one. I've looked at it again today, and I think I'm going to have to snip and trim here and there to get it looking nice again. Although I don't mind an irregular shape really cos I love Bonsais'. :o)

5 Jul, 2010

 

shame though when you cant find a sheltered space for something delicate and so special ;o)
thanx shapla ;o))

True, true Sand. When you said about your lily petals, made me think of my Magnolia. It bursts into flower, I have maybe a week to admire, then comes the wind. Within a day the petals are gracing my lawn. :o(
