Thanks Sanra :o) Yeah, I don't quite have room for a collection yet but there were loads to choose from. This is actually quite a bit darker than the website showed but it seems quite happy sheltered by this wall which silhouettes it well.

i have to hide mine from the wind here. a friend of mine down here specializes in them. when we go to plant sales in the autumn her stall looks so good with all the colours.

That's a great acer Peter. Is it in ground now or are you keeping it contained? By the way I noted and am enjoying the changes to the web site.

Thanks Sanbaz & GG :o)

I'm keeping it in the pot for now, it seems quite happy and as we're in a rented house it means it can come with us if we need to move.

Glad you like the changes :o)

I love Acers, Japanese Maples, but I don't have room for one on my balcony.

In a park in the town centre here they have some very nice ones. :)

Peter would it be possible to add some emoticons we can click on to insert them in our posts?

They're attractive trees aren't they, and some lovely colours.

No smileys just yet I'm afraid, it's on the list though.
