I’d lack to thank everyone for sharing these wonderful Autumn images. Here at Chez Monkey my little blighters are still hanging on in there all except my Mountain Maple. I checked this morning and I’m getting some lovely colours. Unfortunately, I won’t be sharing the tree with you as it’s a bit of a sight. I took it along to a bonsai professional’s workshop and have since regretted it. OK, it wasn’t exactly the “Moaning Lisa” to start off with but now it looks like the Elephant Man on Acid affraid

Thanx again for sharing,
Okk, Okk,
Simon

PS
Morten, your trees are a real inspiration to me and I hope to one day get my Shohin’s to half the standard of yours. Thanks for sharing your masterpieces cheers

Jeremy,
Glad to see that you bought the pair of grouse!
They look great with the display, I was tempted myself but settled for a suiseki instead! Laughing

Hi Dave,
Couldn't resist the grouse. Very good call on your part. Wink
Chris and I did an informal talk last night on displaying at Warminster.
It was very impressive response from the society members.

My hunter's moon Autumn display, got an airing, with warminster's members input.

A second option suggested.


The subdued light is important to the overall feel of the display.

A little background from Wikipedia
The Hunter's Moon is so named because plenty of moonlight is ideal for hunters shooting migrating birds in Northern Europe. The name is also said to have been used by Native Americans as they tracked and killed their prey by autumn moonlight, stockpiling food for the winter ahead.
The Hunter's Moon and Harvest Moon are not brighter, smaller, or yellower than during other times of the year, but all full moons have their own special characteristics, based primarily on the whereabouts of the ecliptic in the sky at the time of year that they are visible. The full moons of September, October, and November, as seen from the northern hemisphere — which correspond to the full moons of March, April and May as seen from the southern hemisphere — are well known in the folklore of the sky.

Love the Grouse. Any chance of a close up. Also, you've changed the display around??? If it should be as the second pic, is'nt the planting on the wrong side of the pot? Is it just me or are the avatars not showing up????

Hi Will,
You are of course correct.
The warminster members liked it that way around, and it grew on me. Wink
At the start of the talk



A brace? of Grouse. A close up.

Tanks for the close up. Were they made in the UKand what sort of wood , is it walnut. I make little carvings myself but they would'nt fit in with bonsai... somewhat erotic..would cause offence, but some people like them

My guess is Steve meant
... somewhat erotic..would cause offence, but some people like them
. A link to some images, off site, would curb his erotic quest!

I think the very hot Spring and early Summer has worn this tree down a full month early.
