Therefore, in order to minimize my “Tamukeyama”s’ adjustment, we planted him in a manner that he could stay in the same location in the garden, and, thus continue to receive the same sunlight source that he was accustomed to; hence, his adjustment to a new home would be minimal.
By my having it potted in a rod–iron stand, air was able to circulate around my “Tamukeyama”, so planing its move gave me cause for great concern.
Therefore, I was not only fortunate to be able to find and use a larger clay pot, but I was also fortunate that I found a larger rod–iron stand. This stand could’ve easily been the sibling of the old stand because they look alike — except for their height and girth. What this meant for my “Tamukeyama” was less things to adjust to in its new home. If you’d like to get a visual sense of what we did, please see the collage posted below:
I find the shifting of my trees’ living quarters around akin to this: when a family has more than one child, or children of different sexes, and living space within the home permits, one child has a certain room in the house, while the others know when he or she moves out of the room, one of them will move into that space.
My Acer shirasawanum (Autumn Moon) seems pleased to have been chosen to be placed in what had been the “Tamukeyama”s’ place of residence as evidenced in the collage posted below.
As you may recall, dear reader, the very awesome colors of both of these leaves, was mentioned in a previous post, authored by my Physocarpus opulifolius (Coppertina Tree), which you may refer to by clicking here.
The top right–hand corner of the collage shows my Acer shirasawanum’s (Autumn Moon), “limey” colored leaves on their own. As for the lower left–hand corner of the collage, my Acer shirasawanum’s (Autumn Moon), can be seen to the far right hand corner of the collage’s image, which means it it was in the southeast corner of my terrace garden, where it had been moved from its location of the northwest corner near my Physocarpus opulifolius (Coppertina), because it needed more shade. However, now that it has been placed in the 'Tamukeyama's' original rod–iron stand, it is in the southwest corner as indicated in the collage image at the lower right.
