Maple in leaves alredy

Leaves? Let's be reasonable. They aren't leaves, yet. But they are a bit early nevertheless. It must be warm in your glasshouse. ;-)

It's not the greenhouse. The tree was at the Shun Ten exhibit for three days and there it was warm.
It is, however, quite normal for most maples to start getting green after middle of March in the greenhouse. This is so since 20 years without problems.

We're still a couple weeks away from green here; this makes me smile to see. Thank you for sharing it :)

Great promise in an image like this! :-) Like Heather, we don't see green on any maples yet; only my "mudroom trees" are putting out any leaves yet. But it's coming.
Thanks!

Every time I see this Acer of yours Walter, I think that I'm looking at the best deciduous clasical bonsai that I ever saw...anywhere, ever!
This tree is awsome. My deciduous favourite. Bonsai in full traditional meaning of the word.

Well, Sebastijan, then I guess you haven't seen quite that many traditional/classical deciduous bonsai.

Heather Coste said...

Oooooor..... he really, really likes this tree, and people have different tastes? Just a thought :)

Yes, they are beautiful trees. Mine have already started to leaf out as well, but we have already had temps in the 80 F range here in Suffolk, Virginia. This is a little unusual for us this time of year.
