A few gallon.

After a day like today when it turned out to be a scorcher my trees needed a lot of water to see them safely through the night.

Sunday morning sunshine.

It is nice to see some nice sunshine again.

Boulevard Cypress.

I had this Boulevard Cypress for sale at the boot sale in Doncaster last year and as no body bought it I did this restyle on it.


This is it now eleven months later and it has put so much new foliage on it needs a good trim.


Maybe I will try at the boot sale again this year.

A trim and clean up.

Today I have been doing a trim and clean up on this Itoigawa Juniper.
-----------------------------------------------------

I think this tree is getting better with each trim.

Natter night 19th August 2019.

One of them nights that turned into something special when Robert Porch arrived with Boxy.The new boys Kevin and Gibby got an insight into how a good teacher works and Paul had a free workshop with Robert.
------------------------------------------------

The studio was quite full tonight.


Kevin got on with wiring his Hinoki.


Then Robert talked through the styling of the tree with him.
For a first styling it turned out really good.


Paul meanwhile got on with wiring his Juniper.


A nice little Shohin tree.


The finished image, for now.


One for Graham, Robert is sitting waiting for you so you better not be late.


It is always a good night when Robert shows up.
The knowledge he imparts is second to none.

Thanks Robert.
