      Aquilegias and Euphorbias look quite good in the rain today. Everything else looks bleak!

                I have a young A. Orange Dream @strongylodon. My acers are all just starting to get some new growth showing, so it's nice to see some already looking good. They're a great addition to a garden :smile:

                        Hi @strongylodon You seem to have quite an exotic garden! I also have a Fatsia japonica 'Spider’s Web' specimen, but it's in a (large) container (on wheels). It's mostly in the shade.
                        I hesitate to transplant it to the ground, as it seems to not like either the sun nor frosty spells of weather. What is the aspect of yours? Here's a pic taken last autumn.
