August or Autumn?

Looks like the first sign of Autumn.

This Virginia creeper has turned a lovely colour.

Bonsai Thursday with Dave.

Today with Dave we worked on this Blauwes Juniper.

We worked creating some deadwood.
It will be wired and styled later.

We also did some more work on the deadwood on this Yew..

One to one with Susan.

On Monday afternoon I started a one to one workshop with Susan G on her Taxus she got off Ken M.

The tree in Susan's garden about six weeks ago, growing really well.

Monday lunch time when Susan arrived here.You can see the extra growth it has put on.

After a couple of hours work in the studio.

When we stopped about four o'clock. we are about half way there.

Tuesday lunch time we started again, at Susan,s this time.

Almost there, just the apex to do.

The final image for now.

After doing this tree Susan is getting quite good at putting wire on now. Practice makes perfect.

Natter night 14th August 2017.

Holliday season is with us, so not much going on tonight.

I did some more work on this Boulevard Cypress. Thinning out the foliage and cleaning the Shari and Jin, then a coat of lime sulpher.

Andy P brought his Siberian Elm to have some wire removed.

Shaping up nicely.

This morning in the studio.

I have been in the studio this morning cleaning some of my pots and noticed my stands were very dusty.

Once they were cleaned I thought why waste the oppertunity while they are clean, so I placed some trees on them.

Looking down.

Getting bored with the usual photos looking at my trees so here are some different views.

I don't know what people thought I was doing standing on the table taking photos.

A short video, my Bonsai today.
