Hi all

Prunus...I dug it up in my garden in 1991... a abricot graftet on it had died off...
2015, The old tree is comming back together after a third restyle...still in a needed big pot, standing 24 cm tall, having a flower for the first time ever


Today does the tree still need some shaping up...next year will it go back in a small pot again


The first photo  


the flower is quit small...Blackthorn siced, it has no scent...but I dont complain....waited 24 years for the little wonder  Smile

Kind regards Yvonne

Thank you Akhater

The small tree have ben moved to bigger pots during summer, to give the roots room to develope the nebari and trunk...every winter have it ben cut back again, and repottet... In 2013 I used a big pot right away, insteadt of using a small shohin first, also did I not cut the root so much back, as I was thinking about letting the tree become bigger in sice...The reason was, the stalks on the leafes are so long, it may not look ballanched as small.  

This winter does the tree have a nice shohinsice, and I have taken a shot at it, as a shohin again, as I could use it in the shelf...style and specie...maybe as a winterdisplay...lets see how it look in leafes this summer later Smile

Kind regards Yvonne

I have kept the tree terrible dry, while it was leafing out, at the same time have I fertilized it with a VERY low N... P and K was VERY high...shots are still growing, but the first leafs has hardened up

I could prune the top a little more, and the tree is only 17 cm tall....I use big leca to hold the branches apart from each other... the branches easily brake, and have a habit of growing straight up in the air Smile

A real metamorphosis ...from a worm What a Face ...to a butterfly Beaurangel

I like the way you use the round paver for a backdrop.   Clever indeed.

Which of your stones would you display with this tree?  I would like to see your trees and stones together. And the combination of the two, the moods they create. How about it!


Love and Light

Hi Andre

you are giving me hard time Smile....the kaede is a shohin, and I prefer to exhibit a small tree like this with a kusamono, or a figurine...the figurine do I want to be in scale with the tree....it could be a dog, or person, or maybe a stonelamp etc.
The kaede is japanese, and I would want to exhibit it with a japanese figurine...the ginnala is european, and it would not bother me to use a european figurine together with it, but a japanese works better for me...as the furniture and pots are japanese too....depends of the display.

If I had a tokonoma , would I be happy to exhibit a stone of any kind, together with a larger tree...having this bigger space in the tokonoma, and a higher table, makes the scale less to not important.

I could say more about the subject...but what do you think about this

Kind regards Yvonne

Unbelievable Yvonne !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Great work cheers cheers cheers

I can only imagine when you I see such trees with "from seed" or "from seedling" next to it how much time and dedication it requires affraid

Would you have any progress pictures by any chance ?

After the major acer dieback I had in my bonsaiyard some years ago, was I given the uppertunity to create something new from the remains...A regular Acer palmatum gave me a raft, and this small stump

Today am I celebrating the first little vire on the tree Smile, untill now has it only ben a lot of fertilizer and endless pruning.

The tree is 11 cm tall, and there will be some  more carving to do, and a lot of taper Building Smile

Kind regards Yvonne

Like the last Little acer, is this one also a remain...
It has a long sufferingstory, but I find it interesting now, and look forward to work with it

I bought the Acer palmatum trombone in 1997
Made a layering that in the end of the summer only had rooted in the one side...the year after, the other side was layered again, and this time it worked.

The tree in the first pot...developed it for some years, then it died back together with all the other acers.

This is 2004...Tried to shohin the rest of it for a while, but it never turned out nice, and I gave up.

Then I cut away the side branches as the were of no beauty...last year have I done a lot of pruning to get the new branches in place, and to get it ready for bigger pots as it grow...I want the tree big

The front
The tree is 29 cm. tall...The twostep layering have given the tree a nice tilt, and the cut away branch in the front is closing up nicely, in the end of the summer will the scar be covered, or at least next year...the bulg in the front will go away I expect, as no strong branch is feeding it

The side, with the old trunk-end carved smoot

The back is closing up, it will take a little longer...inbetween do I spray the scars against fungus

Last side, with the second removed branch
The tree was worth throwing out, but I think I will keep it a little longer Smile

Kind regards Yvonne

Thank you Steve

I dont think everything should be kept and worked on as a future bonsai...sometimes is it better in a case like this, to just plant it in the garden, or the nature, if nothing special/usefull is there.

The small one had its roots and trunksice, that can make it a nice shohin in the future....but it will need a LOT of work before it can winterdisplay...but for now is it healthy and cute, and dont take up much space Smile

The last acer had a very nice nebari, it had previus ben seen best from the sides...this is why I took the large step, and went for the design on the photos, now the beauty of the tree was on its heals anyway...The nebari is the best thing in the tree, and it would have bothered me forever to keep it as it was.

Kind regards Yvonne

This Acer palmatum " Nikko" is a wild form, native to Japan...it is extrem hard to bonsai, and I never saw a Photo, or seen it in a japanese exhibition.
It very easy root, and this is why I still continue have the specie in my garden...have had it for maybe 20 years, but still no bonsai survived, or was usefull...this shohin siced tree is the remains of a larger tree that failed  Smile...the last years have I tried to " pull myself together" to figure out how to bonsai-treat the tree right, and for the moment am I working on 11 of them...this year am I satisfied with my results, but it is a kinda tough guy to bonsai, and I may fail in the end after all...  

14 cm...I do it because of the lovely difrent, from other acers, leafs, and the fact they reduce well, they become tiny, and from the beginning does the tree have old looking bark....Also do I like to understand and solve problems


Kind regards Yvonne
