Hi,
I planted this tree in my garden about twenty years ago and every year it produces these beautiful Pink leaves and is absolutely stunning. My picture can not really do it justice. The only problem is as it was such a long time ago that I planted it I can not remember its name. Now I know that there are some really good gardeners as well as photographers out there so I was wondering if any of you could jog my memory and tell me what it is called. I know that's its a member of the Maple/Acer family so if you can please help me! Smile

Thanks for taking the time and looking. David.

Are these the young/emergent leaves? How beautiful. So sorry I can't help you with the ID - I'm in the wrong geography, as you know Smile

Linda just inspired me to capture the beauty of dried things...and you've just inspired me to go on and capture the beauty of new leaves: something the parents and I have always regarded with delight.

Sorry, was all set to vote for this yesterday, then got called away! I think it is probably a form of Japanese Maple but don't know which. The leaf colour is superb as is your presentation.

Great image, really shows off the lovely colours.

Iím sure Iíve got one of these in my garden, Iíve had mine for about 13 years, if I remember correctly it was called a ďMop HeadedĒ Maple. Iíve often wanted to photograph the new leaves but couldnít decide how to approach it.

David

You don't upload pictures regularly and when you do, not only they're meticulously captured images but has interesting historical background too.

Have a great week.

Thanks to all the people who have looked at this image and voted. I would also like to thank Linda (Mynett) on her Sparkle Award, it is very much appreciated and totally unexpected. Thank you.
I have also found out the name of the Maple: Smile

"Acer pseudoplatanus 'Brilliantissimum"
