Description:

Just moved to a new flat - the garden contains what I've been told is the biggest Japanese Maple in Bournemouth. Certainly one of the finest specimens I've ever seen! Girth is 1.5 metres at 1 metre above the ground. To give some idea of scale the hedge infront of it in the second picture is around 2.5 metres tall. Surprising to see how many bees and other insects are attracted by the flowers at this time of year.
