Exmouth show

Post  JR on Mon Jun 24, 2013 11:20 pm

Another great Exmouth show. Everyone friendly and welcoming (as usual)

 I'm sure I speak for all the Dragons that were involved (especially Lewis who walked around with a big grin on his face all day)

Chris was spot on judging  best club display in show.

Marcus, thanks for posting the dates for the next two years, I think they will be firmly fixed in the Dragons programme of events.

Beautiful displays. 
  I really don't know much about the art of accent plants, but I usually love seeing them just as much as the trees. These are stunning. Are the mushrooms in the 5th shot of the second post (Celtic Knot) real? They look just too perfect. I also love the one with what looks like the use of a piece of deadwood. Looking forward to seeing more from the show.

Hi Mike, Yes your right the mushroom's are resin, its only this way they would last the show.

Marcus treated us to being able to see the winning tree from the best of British last week at the NEC, it was this fantastic broom style Zelkova

you wont believe the next picture Chris - six and a half hours with the tweezers on monday and leaves are off one by one !!



this will let those important inner branches get some light so they strengthen and then a new little very fine branch will sprout from each leaf base that was plucked off. i did a little zelkova 2 weeks ago and it was leafing out again in days - these really do grow quickly when they are happy! i smile to myself when people think nice trees arrive ready done and stay perfect with no work - if only reality was so simple Laughing. Every year this will have to be defoliated at least once and the task will take longer each time as the twigs multiply- expecting so much from a tree will need a really balanced feed regime too or it will not respond to the demands of life in the fast lane

cheers all, see you soon i hope

Hi Marcus
Now we can see the class of this tree and with the slight adjustment of the front that you talked about I can't wait to see in a winter image.

Here is some more photo's from the day

2 Trees of the Native display, Peters Blackthorn and Neil's English elm

Again, beautiful trees and accents.
I just wanted to comment on the figurines in the pot. I love it! Works well for a tree that's planted off centre. Only thing I think that would help make it better would be a layer of moss.

Thanks for sharing, Mike

The theme of the Dragon display

Post  llewbach on Mon Jul 08, 2013 9:08 pm

This display was themed as a tribute to Japanese haiku poets ( a form of short verse )
Working from left to right.

Kobayashi Issa (1762-1826) The peoples favourite and a lover of nature.

Those distant mountains
reflected in the jewelled eyes
of the dragonfly.

Shofu-ni ( 1669-1758 ) Widow of a Samurai who became a poet nun.

Both the Haiku sleeve
and the plantain
withered in the field.

Matsuo Basho ( 1644-1694 ) The greatest haiku master and disciple of Zen meditation

Plum blossom scent
as the sun comes up
on a path through the mountains.


Yosa Buson (1717-1783 ) Haiku poet and painter and family man.

A deer in the cold
his horns pressed to his body
like withered twigs.

I would be interested in peoples thoughts or questions. Does it work as a display ?
