Our creative adventure began in 1999, a new house and a bare plot. We were part of the NGS family for 10 years. Now we’re sitting back and relaxing!

Thanks Karen. The leaves will change to a pale yellow in a few weeks (swipe ⬅️ to see previous photos) but at the moment it’s a glorious orange 🧡 @KOutdoors

Oh yes I see what you mean Barbara. It’s like a chameleon the way the leaves subtly change colour 😊 @jacaranda

I think it is, Elaine 👍 When I posted a photo of the foliage a couple of weeks ago I did some research and decided that it was Orange Dream. I meant to repost with the correct identification but I forgot 🤷🏼‍♀️ #seniormoment 🤣🤣 @wagsmomthompsonbtinternetcom 😘

It took me a while to work out how, but I’ve added the correct name now, Elaine. Thanks for reminding me 👍😘 @wagsmomthompsonbtinternetcom

Beautiful! One of my favorite early maples. How old is this one?🌞

@sunlovin probably about 12 years old. It’s been moved once as it was struggling due to originally being planted too close to other shrubs and trees, so it’s great to see it thriving now. 👍

This little #acer always gets forgotten as its older cousin is bigger, brighter and much more dominant. However, Big Cousin has lost all its leaves now so Little Cousin can shine! #foliagefriday #acer #autumncolour #mygardentoday 🍁💚🍁

I've got a funny Acer, in Summer it's a strange colour, but come Autumn it's a lovely colour. I must get a photo of it ♥️♥️

This one’s in a sheltered position which must be why it keeps its leaves for longer. It’s a lovely colour in spring but nondescript in summer, Chris 😏 I look forward to seeing a photo of yours 👍😘 @midnightgardener

@jacaranda I wish it could look like this the rest of the year. I can't even remember planting it but I know I did, as there wasn't one single plant or anything, except for big trees ♥️♥️

Beautiful! The Japanese Maples go through so many color changes throughout the year. That’s why I have a collection of them. They’re small, and that’s good, so I can collect more. 😁

Once upon a time I was a little sapling given away free at an NGS Garden Owners plant swap. Now I’m a beautiful tree living in a lovely garden in West Sussex! #acer #freebie #goldenfoliage #deciduous #ngsgarden #sussexgarden #foliagefriday
