Bonsai Sunday.

Having been away for most of this past week, I foliar fead my trees last night and this morning after watering they look really fresh and healthy.
-----------------------------------------------------------------







They will be having a feed of fish emulsion later this week.

Another mouth to feed.

This guy must have stowed away in the car when we came home from Yorkshire.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------


He looks happy enough, so we will let him stay and feed him well.

A few days away.

We have just returned from a few days away over in Yorkshire. A well earned break that the wife and I were in need of.


Sunrise from outside the hotel.


A new friend " Mika " the Cockerpoo. More like a teddy bear than a dog.


Thanks to Alan and Jude for a nice time.

Procumbens juniper on Bogwood .

A short video of my Procumbens juniper that was planted into a big piece of Bogwood on Thursday 12th July 2018.
--------------------------------------------------------------



It only took two hours and about six pieces of wire to create this stunning image.

John's Hawthorn.

As John was otherwise engaged last night, he came tonight instead, he brought another of his Hawthorn's for some work to be done.
---------------------------------------------------------------------

This is before any work, I like the Walsall pot.


After work, looking much neater and compact.


He was pleased with the result.

Bonsai Thursday with Dave.

I was busy watering the trees this morning when Dave arrived, a lot earlier than normal, I since found out why.
---------------------------------------------------------

Dave is much like I am, impatient, so we decide to put together this bogwood and the Procumbens Juniper.


The Juniper.


Only four pieces of wire and what a result.



The bogwood is a meter long and the tree fitted it perfectly.
All that is needed now is plenty of good after care and a lot of luck.

Bonsai Wednesday.

As Tony is on holiday and John is staying home to watch some kids playing football on the TV, I have been left on my own tonight.
----------------------------------------------------

So what to do ?
Grab a pair of shears and do some trimming on my trees.
My Dawn Redwood was looking a little untidy, with all the new growth.


It did not take long with a sharp pair of shears, but looks a lot neater.


Now I can go watch Top Gear.
