Looks great, Bill.

I'm still waiting for the fall colors on my trees. The only one that has any real fall color so far is my Full Moon Maple 'O isami'.

Man . . . I know Bloodgoods are maligned as commonplace but there is just nothing common about that color. That's awesome. I love your Koto No Ito too. Mine has never gotten that orange. It tends to be more yellow and gold.

Love the pictures. I thought I would send some of mine but I've never done this before so I don't know how they will turn out.

This is the last of the fall jm colors.

1. Green Cascade
2. Sensu
3. Aconitifolium
4. Looking through a garden bed at Orangeola past the dwarf blue spruce and into the woods and burning bushes in the backyard
5. Looking down from the top yard and past the driveway that can barely be seen. Berma Bridge in foreground, Red Baron to the right, Koto no ito and leaves left on a Paper Bark Maple, across the driveway is a Kousa dogwood and into the wild invasive burning bushes in the woods.

Until spring...
