THE START OF A NEW BONSAI SEASON IS HERE!

Hi, everybody,

I was really glad that the time had finally arrived to be able to do some work on my trees again! And early this week, whenever the weather allowed for it,  I rewired and restyled  3 of my deciduous trees.  And for today, after two days of pretty bad storms, I planned to rewire my small Hawthorn again and reposition all the branches again into there desired places. Well, the day started out as a mild and even sunny day, but unfortunately, that did not last very long! At the end of the 2 hours wiring and styling session, I was half frozen and glad to get indoors again where it was warm!  

                    Below: This is how this tree looked in February 2008.

 Although I realize that this little tree needs a lot more work and growing time to fill out properly, I am still pretty happy with the result for now!

 
  

This little Hawthorn will  feature in a progressive styling story that I am writing for a bonsai magazine, and in a few weeks time,  I hope to repot it into the  lovely Chinese green colored pot that my dear friend Dan Barton gave to me as a present, the last time I was a guest at his house! I will let you all know how that works out! 

Cheers,   

 Hans van Meer.
