Japanese maple

A few years ago, my in-laws gifted me with a small Japanese maple tree. We kept it in a pot for a year (or maybe two?) and kept the tree indoors during winter. But then it had grown enough that it could be put in the ‘full ground’ in the garden.

We used bits of electrical wire (brown, visible in this photo) to guide the branches to spread out instead of growing upwards, and that worked quite well.
Normally, the leaves are a reddish-brown colour, but what with the fall, my trees has really intensely red leaves! I love it.
