Getting dark.

As it was getting dark I decided to have a little play with the camera.

Turned out nice.

I have just given this Berberis a small trim this morning as it is growing really well.

A very chunky tree.

Nice pot.

A nice pot for a Maple.

Bonsai Thursday with Dave.

Today it is so nice and sunny, we just sat in the garden drinking coffee and had a good natter about Bonsai.
Mind you it was nice to see my trees enjoying the sunshine as well.

I am also pleased for the rest as well.

Bonsai Wednesday.

John and Tony came over once again for another Bonsai night, John brought an Itoigawa juniper which belongs to a neighbour  of his.

Before starting any work.
The front view.

The rear view.

Having a good look to see where to go with this tree.

I wired most of the tree.

Then created a basic image.

The tree will now be left to recover and will be treated to a good season of feeding.

Repotting with Andy P.

Today Boxie and I went to Andy's to help him to repot a couple of his trees.

This Squamata juniper was the first one to be done as the pot was broken during some high winds.

Another Juniper potted into a nice Walsal ceramics pot.

Both done and back on the bench.

While we were there I remembered to take a photo of this Maple group put together by Robert Porch a couple of weeks ago.

Andy had been having a smashing time during the winter.

A good mornings work.

Brian's Itoigawa.

I have just finished doing the last bit of wiring on Brian's Itoigawa juniper that I started on last night.
This is how it was when it was brought last night.

After a lot of wire was added and a bit of pruning.

It is well on it's way to becoming a very nice tree.
