Acer palmatum

My maple had few overgrown shots and it needed some maintenance. It looks pretty untidy, I know. But I think it is getting into stage when it will look like nice tree. I think I will pot it into decent pot next spring and in winter it could be wired. Autumn seems to be too far yet, but colors are amazing. It is hard not to fall in love with maples. 



messy stage before trimming





Hollow trunk at the base, in forest perfect place for fox to hide...

...and this is what fox would see on its way back home from walk in the woods, when blackbird start to sing up there in the crown.
