Acer With Joyful Autumn Colour

Red acer leaves in sunlight

Our friend, Bill, is growing on a collection of acers in large pots. He pointed out this one out as his favourite for its autumn colour. I can see why!

It seemed eminently suitable for sharing as my contribution to Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Red.

  1. The leaf colour reminds me of the rich pink of the Watermelon I had for dinner tonight, Susan. It was the brightest pink/red I’ve seen in a Watermelon for many years.

    1. Some acers are more brightly coloured than others under the same conditions but I’m sure the weather that particular year affects whether they stop producing chlorophyll sooner or later, and encourages the leaves to stay on the trees for longer or shorter time.
