Linda gave me this dwarf laceleaf Japanese Maple for my birthday back in 2008. She's beautiful and resilient, even though we've been terrible caretakers. We've never been able to find the 'right' place for her, and so she's languished in a white pot, unappreciated, undealt with. Last week, inspiration struck, and suddenly I knew that she should move to the front of the house, a regal center of attention in the midst of hostas and ferns. We found a gorgeous red pot, and settled her in, just to see. She's stunning there, more so as the hostas and ferns take off. We'll be transplanting her directly into the red pot, but already she's stunning, seen and appreciated every day when we leave and come home.
