My Hawthorn

Post  DangerousBry on Tue Mar 05, 2013 12:48 pm

I thought I'd post a few photos of my new acquisition. Collected and purchases during my visit to Swindon via a bonsai friend.

It only just fitted in the car on the way home, and clawed and scratched at me the whole way:



Huge Grin Guys!!!! Here it comes



Thoughts?? :)

Hawthorn envy here on this side of the pond! Enjoy your new baby! Worth any blood you donate to work on it. BTW, do you normally prune off the thorns before working on Hawthorns?
Thanks,
Todd

Thanks for your replies:

@todd - I think for an authentic winter image you need to see the barbs, I'm guessing there's only so many times they can rip into and hack you to pieces before they have to go ;)
We'll see how I get on during wiring later towards the end of the year

Here's a close up of the bark:

Shocked Wow! Shocked
That's some seriously killer material to work with. I see a lot of potential there for development into a really, REALLY good bonsai.
Congrats! Smile

The Burrs 2013 Styling enhancement ....for reference:

Terry Foster and Hans Van Meer and I chatted about how to approach enhancing the styling of the tree.
Hans taking a Reference photo

Working some of the deadwood.






The Finished tree, and all the bits that were trimmed off.



During the evenings banter, I found Terry squinting and measuring up the days styling. Hans came across the room with a beaming smile "My god...have you seen that tree from over there!!??"

Great times... A pleasure to meet you, and Thanks for all your help.

Bang upto date April 2014!

After the Burrs weekend my hawthorn has spent a quite few months in the corner of the garden, praying that went weren't to get the 2' of snow we had last year. Moved to a nice spot it's started to bloom quite happily. Even pushing buds on old wood :)

I've looked over the tree this morning and I'm expecting quite a few flowers :)

I'm a non UK english speaker, and it does look to be an absolute stonker of a tree! No translation needed Smile

I worked on a bunch of Hawthorn at the Weyerhaeuser collection yesterday, many of which were in bloom. A coupla nice ones but nothing Stonker class like this one Smile

At the risk of giving Bry a big head, that is a stonking tree!

Not much else needs saying except please keep the thread updated as it develops further.

A fantastic tree Brian.
Would love to have a Hawthorn but in a small size. As Dan Butler said "Jealousy is a terrible thing"..
Looking forward to see those white/rose flowers.
