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
