Some Autumn colour

Post  Richard S on Sun Oct 18, 2015 5:09 pm

Autumn has finally arrived in the UK and at least some of my trees are starting to colour up nicely!

Unfortunately I don't have many bonsai that warrant posting on an illustrious forum such as this Cool but here are three that are shaping up OK and showing some Autumn colour to boot.


Small Elm clump


Deshojo Maple


Small Elm


Cheers folks

You just gotta love Japanese maples! Everything about them is great, especially the Autumn colour.

Nice tree.

Ehm.. Selling yourself short are you? Great trees.

Just watch the small elm, and especially the moss. I would remove the moss crawling up on the trunk. It will affect the bark.

Thanks guys.

Leatherback, yes I will clean the Elm trunk as soon as the leaves fall which will not be long now.

I clean it every year and every year it grows back again Rolling Eyes The price of wanting moss on the soil surface I guess.

What a difference a week makes!

This large Field Maple was still green last week when I photographed the Elms.

Actually it would probably have looked even better in flatter light. I photographed it in exactly the same location as the Elms but it was a bit too sunny today. Still, I'm not complaining. The tree is helping brighten up the garden nicely.

Here's another Japanese Maple (Orange Dream). This ones very much still in training but looking fine with it's red Autumn foliage.

Beautiful colours indeed!

I don't have many bonsai that can rival yours, but the colours of these two are quite nice I think:



PS: the pot is a major element, so I think I have to mention it's by Erin Pottery.

Great trees and good colour Alain, thanks for sharing.

That Erin pot is also very attractive.
