Another lovely summer's night for my natter night, windy and threatening rain, only thing was it was cold as well,so it can't be summer.Four visitors came with two trees so we kept quite busy, wiring, clipping and creating deadwood.
First one a Fir of unknown variety, belonging to Ken M.
About two years ago Ken was going to dump this tree as he thought it had no prospect of becoming a bonsai,but we decided to wire the main branches and pull them down then gave it a clip and left it to grow. Last year we had another go at it and left it to recover once again.
Now after reworking it is really starting to take shape.
This next photo show's Tony W creating deadwood on his multi trunk Cotoneaster.
He had to leave before I got another photo, but I will get a better one next time.
We also watched the two videos the Bonsai Eejit has of the Ryan Neil lectures on Pines, if you have not seen them yet check them out they are very good and informative.
