bonsai general - 21 views

February ended with a large tour group composed mainly of new students of three newcomers, one of returnees. Thanks Andrew, Dan, Steve and John (our veteran) for a fantastic and productive three days. And thanks for taking such great pictures! Many of them did not take, however, found in my camera-


shot I found all: a. A splinter of Andrew, John, Steve in the background, and most of Dan



Old trees …

Steve and Andrew addressing the root mass of this Japanese maple.


This is the maple tree sister had in the last post, air in layers about six years ago from a sweet, thin thing I bought after back from Japan. I got it at Wee tree, I think.


bonsai levitated. (Enjoy, Greg -)


John noodling one Trident, which is a strong suggestion of a better nebari. Seedlings to be threaded on the table.


Dan excavate part of the root system of a limber pine.

In horrible place ‘potting’ discovered in the back of this fir, which was partially bare rooted. The opposite side was in akadama / pumice launched a couple of years ago and was a virgin.


Dan are a professional photographer or what? He loved it. (I think it was Dan with the camera this time …?)


Steve and I chopsticking. For anyone who does bonsai, that does not mean that we are fencing with sticks. It reads: ‘soil settlement between the roots’. With chopsticks.


I love that rawhide mallets.


is so funny photograph photographers. Why?
