Reddish-brown the leaves for now But darkly purple later. Red wears a crown when leaves fall down But the Crimson King’s is greater.
I had planned to post this back in May when the leaves had opened up on the tree and it possibly would have made more sense. But there are many things that didn’t go as planned this year. We’re all doing what we can.
I hope you are doing well where you are. Take care.
These leaves usually change rapidly from green to bright red. It usually gives the room a pink glow, having this enormous red tree outside the window. This year the leaves are changing quite slowly. So, no pink glow, but interesting to watch the slow progression from green to red.
Last year I received two pots planted with something called a Flower Rocket for Mother’s Day. I had high hopes, initially chronicling the growth of the two pots that would eventually lead to “thousands of blooms,” according to the product’s packaging.
My last entry comes from day 48, when nothing much was happening after 7 weeks. Throughout the summer I got maybe 6-8 flowers. I took some pictures, but apparently wasn’t excited enough to rush inside and blog about it.
Here are a couple of those pictures. It seems I couldn’t even be bothered to snap a decent shot of the few flowers that did come.
I suppose these do the job of proving that some flowers happened.
I had a bad experience with the Flower Rocket, but to be fair to its manufacturers, it’s possible that my balcony doesn’t get enough sunlight. There’s nothing anyone can do about that. I hope that other people have successful rockets flying to the land of “thousands of blooms,” but it didn’t work for me.
