Bonsai Thursday.

I carried on where I left off last night, wiring the Itoigawa juniper and with some input from Dave, I now know where it is going.
-----------------------------------------------
Some branches were removed and some Jin created.


I may add more wire later.

Bonsai Wednesday.

On my own tonight, as John is at the hospital having his wrist checked, and Tony had the night off.

----------------------------------------------------


So I started to wire this Itoigawa juniper.


I have a lot more to do, but I have plenty of time.


Pleased so far.

The one.

This is an update on my post from yesterday on a pot for a Taxus.
----------------------------------------

I really like this Ian Baillie pot, but thought it was a bit on the big side.


This morning I came across this Bigei pot, which I think is the right size and colour for it.


A good match I think.

Going potty.

Last night before anybody came along Boxy and I were trying to decide if this pot was a good match to a Taxus in my collection.
------------------------------------------------

This is just after the first styling I did.


We tried this Ian Baillie pot that I just acquired from Robert Porch.


We tried it from a different angle and a new side of the pot.


Maybe a little on the large side, but I am still undecided as to which view of the tree I like best.

Natter night 3rd December 2018.

Natter night once more.

 I really look forward to these informal night's of like minded people who come to learn and enjoy the passion of Bonsai.
----------------------------------------------------

This is how happy the evening makes people when they get into Bonsai.


Graham W was the only one who brought trees to work on and got straight down to it.

This nice Literati Cedar needed the smaller of the two trunks brought into line.


Boxy came up with this idea to give something to brace it to


Which worked very well.


The tree will be left for a little while then rewired and styled.


Graham also brought this small tree, which we now think is a Heather,to be dewired.


A quiet night,  but enjoyable and informative.

Itoigawa work.

I started to take the wire off this Itoigawa juniper last night and did not think there was that much on it.
-------------------------------------------

Just goes to show.


There was some on the floor as well


The pot I have chosen for it, a very nice Ian Baillie pot I have had for about four years.


I knew I would eventually find a tree to put in it.

More bargain's.

Here's some photos of the bargain's I got at Robert's yesterday.
-----------------------------------------

This Itoigawa juniper will keep me busy for a while.


A very nice Ian Baillie pot.


Another by Ian Baillie.


Both of these pots have beautiful glazes .
