here are two pictures I made today of my Blackthorn’s in full bloom. The lighting was not ideal, but I still hope you can enjoy the beauty of their fragile blossom that contrast the black rough bark so much that they almost jump out towards you! So sweat!
Above: This little Blackthorn was a present from my old Bonsai friend Tony Tickel when he came over to stay with me, now more than a decade ago! The amazing pot is by a other friend of my John Pitt.
Above: Many years ago I got this little Blackthorn as a gift from Terry Foster a other dear Bonsai friend of mine. The odd thin section, just under the top, is ectualy created by the tree corkscrewing it self twice around there. After many years the deadwood that was created because of this weathered away, leaving that thin looking section. But it looks better in real live than in this picture! 🙂 I repotted it two weeks ago in to this gourgius pot by Slovenia.
Hope you like the pictures?!
