Bonsai Thursday.

We have had a play with this ceramic rock and some Junipers today.

Turned out quite good.

I have just acquired some new material to work on to create  Bonsai from.

Hinoki Cypress.

Natter night 20th January 2020.

Even at this time of year my visitors are very keen to learn all there is to learn about the growing of Bonsai.
To say Kevin was pleased with the result of the work done on his Hornbeam is an under statement.

The tree in it's new pot by Barry Somerville.

Ken T brought this bit of a mystery tree, we are not sure what it is,

A close up of the foliage, can anyone help identify the species?

Graham's tree for tonight a nice Larch, needs a lot of wiring done.

It is very nice to see people having a good time as well as learning.

Graham left his Taxus on Monday so I could do some work on the deadwood and do a little clean up.

Before work.

This morning after the work.

It will be wired and styled later in the year.

Who's pot, the answer.

I asked who the potter is of this pot ?

My good friend Boxy.

Sorry the last time I called someone a good friend I got blocked off Facebook.

Special pot.

This is a pot by a relatively unknown potter.

Can you guess who.

I will show answer tonight.

Natter night 13th January 2020.

It was a wild and very wet night, but my visitors still turned up and we had another really good night.

Boxy brought this nice Scots pine for more wiring practice by the new lads.

Graham being closely watched by Boxy.

Partially done.

This Chinese Elm was the tree that got Gibby into Bonsai, as it happens and not having enough knowledge of how to care for it, it did suffer, so he contacted Boxy for advice.

Now back in good health, time to create an image, more wiring practice.

After a tweak and a slight clip it is looking good.

Ken M's tree, a very nice Larch.

Which had some wire removed and a little trim.

This Taxus was brought by Graham to be dewired.

Job done.

It has been said that Boxy and I are the Morecambe and Wise of the Bonsai scene.
More like Blackpool and thick.
Not saying which is which.
