After quite a layoff I find myself back doing some more bonsai work. Having two kids has restricted my time. Ceramics has also taken over and I have put a great deal of work into making functional objects out of clay. Please visit my online shop AllinOneCeramicsTW
Anyway, I recently went back to Australia for a visit. It was there that I looked at some trees that I started to develop years ago. I picked them out of mum's garden and started wiring and trimming them. It was the first time in a long while. I felt the blood rush once again and was absorbed into what I was doing.
On my return back to Taiwan a week later, I once again took my rusty tools out and began refining some of my trees.
These trees featured in earlier posts.
|January 2019. This tree is the one that I experimented with. Below is the tree almost three years ago. I repotted the tree today. The roots are stable and healthy.|
|The bottom branch.|
|I think I might leave this little side branch for a while.|
|This is one of my favorites. Current picture Jan 2019|
|February 2016. That small branch on the left of the tree become the main branch. Always try and make your tree as small as you can.|
I hope some of these pictures give you an idea of how to think about your young trees and what plans you can have in store. This part of bonsai becomes the creative side. That part is the most fun and enjoyable, at least for me. It's a slow process but I'm in no rush.
Take care out there!
