Very pretty Japanese maple, Bill. I might have had the same 'accident' if I'd had the cash on me. I never, ever shop nurseries with a checkbook or plastic on me. Credit cards weigh too much.

The flowers are pink. What's unusual is that there is a 4' straight trunk before it branches.... why There are lots of buds beginning to open. grin

I love the color of that Shishigahira, but I think my favorite one is going to be....the Weeping Birch! I love anykind of 'weeping' trees, I love birch, and I love the 'crookedie' trunk!!! clap
