More cleaning.

I have been doing some more cleaning in the studio today, ready for my natter night tomorrow.
--------------------------------------------------

I don't know why I bother as it will be like a tip by the time my visitors leave.


Still, nice to be nice.

Callum passes by.

Well storm Callum passed through last night and thankfully no damage here.
-------------------------------------------------------

He did however take most of the leaves off my Dawn Redwood.


As well as my Hawthorn.


But this Maple just gets better.


Autumn clean up.

I got started on an Autumn clean up in the studio today, it's amazing the muck and clutter that gathers up.
--------------------------------------------------------------
Work tops cleaned, shelves emptied and washed.


All the bits cleaned and replaced.


I can start on the other side tomorrow.

Not sure.

Even nature is not sure of what time of year it is.

This dwarf hosta is coming into flower,but the leaves are starting to go back for winter.


Nature confused.

Colour change.

Watching the colours changing every day is a sure sign that summer has gone.


Bonsai Thursday.

Dave arrived with yet another bag of goodies today, yet more driftwood, for us to work with.
----------------------------------------------------
This first piece needs to be cleaned and some detail added.


The second piece Dave had already prepared was the one we worked on. 


It was fixed firmly into a Mica pot.


Before adding this Procumbens juniper.


The front after making sure all the roots were covered with compost.


The back.


Yet another good morning with Dave.

Bonsai Wednesday.

Once again neither Tony or John brought any trees, so I decided to give this Chinese juniper a trim.

Before any work.


A little trim.


A tweak or two.


Finally done.


Bark cleaned as well.
The pot is by Ian Baillie, [ one of his best ]
