This picture is of an Acer Tree which which was taken at Wakehurst Place. The reason I like this picture is because of the intensity of the red and how the rain drops balance on those delicate leaves.
I used to have an Acer tree in my garden that had the same colour leaves on it.. well that was until Bo our Tibetan Mastiff (God rest his soul) arrived and then he used it for teething practice. Once his new teeth were here I tried again and bought another tree exactly the same shade and lo and behold he chewed that one to bits.
There must have been something really yummy about acer trees that he loved.
