The nice white pot with the Acer palmatum ‘Kamagata’ was missing.
|Acer Palmatum 'Kamagata' in a White Pot|
Apparently someone decided that they needed my potted tree more than I did and in their haste to make off with it they pulled the drip irrigation line out.
In the grand scheme of things this is not a big deal. But I was depressed. I was particularly fond of my small little tree. I liked the shape of it. I liked its sharp leaves (which give the ‘Kamagata’ its name – translated it means “Eagle’s Claws”). I liked that it was one of the two trees that JD Vertrees had decided to name.
And I really liked my white pot which gave the tree a little extra height and really brightened up a very shady spot in the yard.
What bugs me the most is that I'm sure that whoever stole it won't enjoy it as much as I had.
