Natter night 21st August 2017.

A bad start to the day when I dropped my phone into a bucket of soapy water and it stopped working.
New one on it's way, good to be insured.

The afternoon was a lot better though, so I started to wire my Hemlock.

I got on quite well, trimming as I went.

Back outside looking better.

I knew Ken M was coming so I asked Susan to bring her Taxus that we worked on last week so Ken could see it in the flesh.He was pleased to see it doing so well.

Ken also brought this Pyracantha for a trim.

Looking much neater now.

Bad start, good finish to the day.

Sunday--- Bonsai.

I thought today that the Procumbens Juniper that was planted into the bogwood landscape was ready for a bit of styling.

The bottom branch on the left side was far to high.

Lowered with the help of a guy wire, then the rest of the branches were replaced in position.

Bonsai in the dark.

Some photos of my trees in the darkness of the night.

Time to wire.

I had some spare time this morning, so I thought I would wire this Juniper that Dave and I started on Thursday.

Thursday after we finished.

Today after wiring and placement of branches.

Outside in daylight.

Still a long way to go, but enough for now.

August or Autumn?

Looks like the first sign of Autumn.

This Virginia creeper has turned a lovely colour.

Bonsai Thursday with Dave.

Today with Dave we worked on this Blauwes Juniper.

We worked creating some deadwood.
It will be wired and styled later.

We also did some more work on the deadwood on this Yew..

One to one with Susan.

On Monday afternoon I started a one to one workshop with Susan G on her Taxus she got off Ken M.

The tree in Susan's garden about six weeks ago, growing really well.

Monday lunch time when Susan arrived here.You can see the extra growth it has put on.

After a couple of hours work in the studio.

When we stopped about four o'clock. we are about half way there.

Tuesday lunch time we started again, at Susan,s this time.

Almost there, just the apex to do.

The final image for now.

After doing this tree Susan is getting quite good at putting wire on now. Practice makes perfect.
