The Japanese maples at the end of our garden are particularly colourful this year. They are about twenty years old now and I actually grew them from seed. We had a bigger garden and a greenhouse back then, but when we moved a few years later we brought them with us. They grow surprisingly quickly, especially after the first ten years, and they are not difficult to grow from seed.
And here is Ginger demanding that I take his photo since I've got the camera out.
