Mine is just starting to bud...I keep a daily lookout on it and the other trees we planted last season

Isn't this a great time of the year when you can see that the trees and shrubs planted last year have made it safely through the winter. Hope to see some pictures of your Japanese maples soon.

What a lovely tree. Wish I had one :)

Thank you for sharing its Spring blossom :)

Fancy a spot of dancing? A Hokey Cokey? Yes? You will need a wiggly tail... :)

Hello Wildlife Gardener,
The tree is very nice with interesting fan shaped leaves. This is the first time it's bloomed and it produced this interesting flower. Ahh, spring dance?
