Acers High

Well it is an acer,
But it's not very high.

It's hard to believe that less than a week ago, this plant had green leaves. I purchased this many years ago as a sprouted seed. This was long before the days of plug plants or trays of seedlings. In those days, all you could buy was mature plants. It was meant to be grown in a pot, but I planted it in the ground. Big mistake ! When the leaves have fallen, I always prune it back to keep it in check. Acers shouldn't really be treated this way, but this one doesn't seem to mind.

I noticed a heavy dew on the grass yesterday morning. Reminded me of the old adage:

"When the dew is on the grass,
Rain will never come to pass."

And it didn't rain !
