Watering system.

The other week I discovered a new watering system for my trees.

It is a five year old system but works very well and his name is Alex.To see him doing the trees he knows the right way to do them and could teach some older people how to water properly.

He has now returned to Poland and seems as though he has adopted me and the mrs as grand parents as he did these drawings for us.

Thank you ALEX.

Shohin Juniper update.

I came across an old photo of this Shohin Juniper from about two years ago just after styling for the first time.

The basic skeleton.

Starting to fill up.

This morning in the sunshine looking much better.

I think it will look even better in this nice Bigei pot.

Yesterday while up in Scotland I added two more pots to my collection.

Bigei pots of course.

I really like the base of this one.

A day out.

Today we had a run up north to Scotland to see Robert Porch and then on to Wattston Bonsai, despite the foul weather we still managed to enjoy it.

My car looked quite full for the journey home.

Dougie even gave us a guitar recital to brighten up our day.

When we arrived back at Boxie's home his new apprentice { Alex } gave us a hand to unload the car.

Bonsai Thursday with Dave.{ Early.}

As I have to be away tomorrow Dave came over today instead for our usual get together.

This Squamata juniper was the subject of the day.

After a clip out it is starting to look more refined.

Another good day having a good natter with Dave.

Natter night 15th August 2016.

It must have been the weather that brought everyone out tonight, as it was a very busy one, with ten visitors turning up.

Ken M  brought this Cascade Cotoneaster to refine a little.

After a little wire and clip it looks much neater.

Next is another Cotoneaster, this one belongs to Susan who wanted some advice about styling.

After I removed a couple of branches that were not needed I showed Susan which branches to wire, which she will do and then bring the tree back to be tweaked into place.

Another of Susan's trees, this one a Common Juniper was given a clip out to allow light in and create a better canopy.

Now thinned out the canopy looks a lot tidier.

Paul M brought this Pisifera Sulpher Spray just to remove the wire.

Finally this Azalea got some work done by Boxie to create a semi cascade, carefully does it as they are so brittle.

Starting to get there and looking nice.

As it was such a lovely evening most people worked outside in the garden.

Yet another good night.

If you go down to the woods today!!!!!

Your in for a big surprise.

Swamp Cypress forest.

Picnic time for teddy bears.
