Bonsai Thursday with Dave.

Today when Dave arrived I was having a look at this Juniper of his that has been here for a while.
We thought that it has recovered enough and it was time to do a little restyling.

Before work.

After work, just a basic styling was done to allow light into the canopy.

Already a marked improvement and quite a nice image.

Home once more.

We have arrived back home after a few days break at the seaside in Yorkshire.
The weather was great the company good and the break just what we needed.

Natural trees by the sea in brilliant sunshine.

My trees at home, awaiting a thunder storm.

At least I will not have to water them tonight.

Another treat.

Another treat to myself today.

This nice Japanese pot from Hokaido.

One more for the collection.

Bonsai Thursday with Dave.

A good day with Dave once more.

This Potentilla was rescued from going to the dump a few months ago.

It was potted up and clipped back to some strong growth, then just left to recover.

This morning we decided it had regained enough strength for another clip out.

After the work was done, it now shows an image that could become a nice Shohin sized tree.

Also today this Japanese rose has burst into flower.

Beautiful colour.

A very enjoyable day.

I'm back.

Having been without my computer for over a week, I am now back on line.

A few photos to catch up with what has been going on here at Ronin bonsai.
A little more work on this Juniper.

Andy P starting a bogwood planting.

Paul's Pisifers has been wired and styled.

After styling.

John's Hornbeam.

After a good clip out.

A Lonicera had a good prune.

Small Cotoneaster wired and tweaked.

Things should be back to normal now, hopefully.

Squamata Juniper, then and now.

A quick update on a Squamata juniper I have had for some years now.

The tree as it was when I first got it from Robert Porch.

The tree today in the rain.

Coming along nicely.

Natter night 3rd July 2017.

A good night with another visit from Robert, although not working tonight just winding down before his drive back up to Glasgow.
Thanks once again for your company and tuition, from all at Ronin Bonsai.

Tonight's trees.

This Chinese juniper, { Andy's } that was styled on Saturday was cleaned and had lime sulpher applied to the deadwood.

After cleaning it shows the Shari much clearer.

Meanwhile Robert had a go at this small Cotoneaster that Ken brought.

Two views after styling.

This Pisifera was also cleaned and Lime sulpher added.

I started to do some wiring and refining on this Itoigawa Juniper, the one on the left.

The work so far, starting to look more compact.

A good night to end a very good weekend.
