Hi everyone, today I've got a very special 'welcome to the autumn season' gift for you. It's an outdoor tree to enrich your plant variety. As it is a Japanese maple tree I present it as some kind of spin-off of my architectural Naruyama series. The plant fits Japanese tea gardens perfectly but will certainly be an eyecatcher in all other gardens, too.

The tree comes in a smaller shrubby bonsai version and as a big tree. Both sizes are available in a red and yellow autumn version and also in fresh spring green:
The leaf textures used are of very high quality. In fact we have such a tree in our own garden and I took photos of it to use as textures.

I hope that you like my work! I'm not in the mood to create for the Sims very much at the moment but if an idea like this one comes up I don't hesitate to realise it.
