Tonight I thought it was a good time to work on my Dawn Redwood as it has not had any work done for over one year. It had a bad start last year when it got caught by a late frost and the foliage was damaged, so I just left it to grow and recover, which it has.
This is before any wire was applied, if you look close you can see the amount of new growth it put on.
After wiring and styling I think it is looking a whole lot better.
Not the usual shape of a Redwood, but I like to be different.
Winter has finally arrived here in the north of England, with a little snow and a good frost, which will help to kill some of the bugs that seem to thrive in the warm and very wet weather that we have had up to now.
I also think that my Bonsai trees need a decent amount of frost during this period to get them to know when spring arrives.
One good thing about a frosty morning it usually means a nice sunny but cold day follows.
But a very nice sunset over the houses.
I had to put at least one photo of a tree on this post.
We are expecting minus 3 degrees Celsius tonight, so another cold one.
