Natter night 18th December 2017.

This coming Monday 18th December will be the last Natter night for three weeks,as it will be Xmas day then new years day, so the first one of 2018 will be the 8th January 2018.


If you fancy a cup of coffee and a mince pie come along and join in.

I don't do Xmas cards, so I would like to wish all my visitors a very merry time over the festive season.

Bonsai Thursday.

When Dave arrived today I was looking at this Juniper, just to see if there is a better planting angle.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Still not sure, but plenty of time to make my mind up.


I quite like this angle.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Dave brought our next project, root over or root in, not sure either.


The pot for now.


Fixed into the pot and filled with compost.


It will be left outside until spring to settle and hopefully cover in more moss.

Natter night 11th December 2017.

Due to the cold weather we could not do any work on the trees tonight, -4at eight o'clock, due to get colder through the night.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The only work done was drinking coffee.


It will warm up one day.

Is Bonsai quick ?

No.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I was given this Squamata juniper about five years ago and did not know what to do with it.


This is the same tree, photo taken earlier this year, shows a much improved image.


It will soon be ready to go into a show, maybe two years time.

Bonsai Thursday.

Wet and windy with a threat of snow to come, so what can you do ?
----------------------------------------------------------------

Dave and I discussed future work to be done in Spring on this Squamata juniper.


We also talked about a pot for this Cotoneaster.

Natter night 4th December 2017.

A little low on visitors tonight and only Boxie brought a tree to do some work on.
------------------------------------------------------------------
This Japanese Black Pine which he managed to remove all the wire from.


Having nothing else to do I brought this Juniper in to have a look at.



After a discussion I added some wire and gave it a basic styling.


A long way to go, but Bonsai has to start somewhere.

Pot cleaning.

The television was a load of rubbish tonight, so I have just cleaned all of my pots in the cabinet.
--------------------------------------------------------------------

Even though they are behind glass doors they still get dull, so I coat them with Camellia oil, to make them shine again.


I really must be potty.
