Its just another perfectly ‘ordinary’ day for Acer palmatum dissectum.

Its fresh spring foliage is a long season behind it.

Its just coasting along here doing its stuff.

Its fruits are colouring:

But, so what?

Its crowning glory of Autumn display is still weeks away.

Its just taking care of business.

But it looks amazing.

The yew is funereally dark

The acid green grass has flushed with the post – drought rains

The cyclamen are tossed like sugary dice beneath it

The Japanese anemones blush girlishly beyond

Bu the Acer is the ‘look and tell’ in this picture:

The trunk and limbs like forked lightening, black against the ‘light box’ lit foliage.

Its just another day for a plant with presence!
