My new maple

 I've been wanting a Japanese maple in my garden for quite some time, and last weekend I finally got one! It's called Burgundy Lace (I think... I've misplaced the label already) and should stay burgundy/red through summer and change to fiery red in autumn. I'm very much looking forward to watching it change throughout the seasons. That dahlia might need to be shifted though, what a clash! The maple is in a pot for now but I'll plant it in the ground in winter, so it can bush out a bit.

 Here it is backlit by the sun. It looks so pretty coming out of the white puff of gaura, almost like smoke and flames.

Lovely autumn colours. Sometimes I wish life was just one long autumn afternoon...
