After moving my Japanese maple from a pot to the front garden last year, I thought it might have died. However, this morning as I left for work, I was so pleased to see it had sprung into life again.
I can see that some of its leaves have a green tinge. Whether or not this means the tree will look greener, I have yet to know, but now I will have the chance to find out.
While acers may not be the most insect-attracting or edible of plants, there is certainly a place for beauty – and these trees looked very beautiful in a Japan two years ago (mine was a present from a friend closer to home). So, I will enjoy it for that and I hope others will, too.
