Lovely close up, Janey. One of our acers puts on pink buds too. Its lovely against the lime-yellow foliage.

Julia, I’m pretty sure the leaves do stay that lime colour through the summer … a good one!

Well what a lot of lovely replies..:))

I'm sure it'll be out soon Sheila, the leaves are edged in light orange when they first unfold too.

That's right Julia of course Klahanie has one too! Sorry Klahanie, we could just be known as The Jordans! Silly billies..:)

Thanks Kate, yes I do like the contrast between the leaves and buds..

I'm pleased it will stay this colour Klahanie and samaras? Very interesting name for the buds, it's certainly very eye catching..

Me too Siris, when the leaves first started to unfurl, I was amazed at the contrasting colours..
