Beautiful little things

During a brief moment of sunshine, two beautiful things in the garden :)

Acer palmatum dissectum atropurpureum Crimson Queen

    1. Those ears are just daft.

      One of Daisy's favourite dogs that we meet regularly is a MASSIVE German Shepherd, terribly gentle and the size of a large Shetland Pony. His skull is larger than mine, but guess who has the biggest ears?

  2. I've never grown a Canis Heinz quinquaginta septem, but I have managed to bring on a Canis bordering-on-neuroticus shedlotsofhairicus woofinum quite nicely and it has developed into to a fully rounded Canis getting-faticus-fattium!!

    1. Your nurturing skills are clearly in fantastic shape {just look at your boys :)}

      You might not have grown a Heinz quinquaginto septem, but I think you've produced a fine example of Canis tantum adoraturm (don't ya just love Google translate!)

  3. Gorgeous Acer. Don't they come in a fantastic colour range. Now even though I don't speak foreign language (maybe Oz), I knew exactly what you'd said and had a giggle. The "toys" that you can use on google are mind boggling aren't they? Good one from HS too. Have a great weekend, take care & give Daisy a cuddle from me.

    1. Hi Susan, thought you would like these pictures :) Yes, excellent language skills from Hawthorn.

  4. I'm afraid I've rather neglected reading your blog lately so I'm glad I just jumped in on this post as it's given me the answer to something I was wondering about the other day. I went out with the dogs and saw a gorgeous bright red tree mixed in with the autumn colours in someone's garden but didn't know what it was - now, thanks to your photo, I know it's an acer :)

    1. Hi Eunice, don't apologise, no-one can keep up with every blog all of the time. The tree you saw would most likely have been an acer, but not the exact variety I have (mine only grows a metre or so tall).
