Good evening GTers! Here's another new addition to my garden! Love how the leaves of this pretty little #acer change #colour throughout the year! Just need to find somewhere to plant it now! 😀

@titchyfra - Yes, me too! I had one for many years growing in a large wooden barrel but it was a bit exposed to the wind, and eventually the leaves became effected, fell off, and didn't grow back! I shall be more careful with this one! 😀

@kathy - I love going to Exbury Gardens which is more famous for its collection of Rhododendrons and Azaleas but also has a lovely Japanese garden that has some wonderfully coloured Acer trees - especially in the autumn! 😀
