Acer palmatum

There is a thin line between "what a nice first buds, how lovely green fresh leaves" and "WTF I will do with all that foliage". It's not even end of April, the beginning of the year and March were colder than usual and trees have more than needed amount of foliage. I had few minutes today in the garden, with daughter on the swing just behind my back. So I took scissors and applied hedge pruning method on maple for 5 minutes. Looks in shape again.
