its a big WWW out there jim... no sense posting the exact same thing in 2 places when the click of a link will do...
would you have an issue if i posted them here instead, with a link from our blog ?
if not, then what is the difference ?
neither one are for commercial gain...

funny i havent seen you raise this issue when a number of others do the same thing...

Kevin, just check the timing of replies.  Simple cumulative effect.   You were just unlucky to be the second in the row.  ( Although you blog is much nicer than mine Wink

Would I be correct in assuming that a link to my comments is verboten?

its a big WWW out there jim...
My point.  And the IBC is designed for people to come HERE to see and learn about trees not go sailing out of that big WWW ocean, perhaps never to return.  You must not have paid a lot of attention because over my many years here, I've often told people (in one manner or another) that we'd prefer not to be directed offsite. 


no sense posting the exact same thing in 2 places when the click of a link will do...

For who?  Our ease, or yours.  Seem like you're acting just like all these service industries are acting these days . . . making it easier on themselves and not thos you are supposed to be serving (or offering information/pictures to.



would you have an issue if i posted them here instead, with a link from our blog ?
if not, then what is the difference ?

I think that's what I was "asking" folks to do.


neither one are for commercial gain...


And that matters, why?

Note: appologies for any typos here and elswer.  Not breathing well tonite.

I have clicked on many things in my life ( getting close to 60, damn ), but kept returning to a good ones.  This is my life and I have nothing to change.  

Jim, I do apologize for any annoyance I may have caused.

Okay Kevin,

but what type of pine is it ?

How many years to what shape?

And dang I broke a nail making the extra press to your blog, so you owe me an acrylic Laughing Laughing Laughing

Tried collecting a Caribbean pine seedlings [ with owner's permission ] of the 3, not one survived.
Good to see you out and about.

Off to Toco in the next week or so - http://www.maplandia.com/trinidad-and-tobago/toco/

Check out the lighthouse area, and the big roof was a ceramic hobby area, not sure if it is still functional.

As baby grows, please send pics. Thank you.
Laters.

khai - i do not know yet what type of pine as i have not shown it to leo yet... Wink

re: the future, once i know it will survive, then the first thing to go is all but 3 branches (trunks?), eliminating the weakest ones, followed by a slight potting angle change placing the largest trunk/(branch ?) closest to the ground, with the other two above it in descending caliper...

after that, i will wait to see what it will show me... and that will be a long way off...

re: your nail - i apologize, but it may not be the last time that happens Laughing


and toco looks beautiful from the sky... toco beach also looks like it could provide some fun waves if you are so inclined to surf or bodyboard...

Hey Kev
Jim can (& should) give you hell, because he know's, as we all do, you can take it. HE ain't picking on you. He knows you. (granted through the web, but its not like your a first time poster)

IBC has had a "nothing but crickets" season. They need more posts here just as the Arbor Arts Collective Blog needs more posts. Its your slow season at work, do double posts. It will help both groups out. Having the url to the blog in your signature will still drive traffic to AAC.

I need to lay eyes in person on the pine to divine its species, Next time I'm at your house I'll take a look. Things like needles straight or twisted. Needles in bundles of 2, or bundles of 2's and 3's, or what ever the counts turn out to be. All little details. But given this was an urban park, the possibilities are not limited to just the Wisconsin native pines. Pinus nigra is my first guess. In person might change that. Illinois dept of Transportation has been using a Chinese species of pine along road ways for salt tolerance. I forget which one. So there are a lot of possibilities.

Bonsai techniques for Pinus nigra, are general enough that you could use them for a number of species.

Er...

I didn't read all the details, but as long as it's a shared experience, it's all right with me: sometimes, you just want to annoy people with lenghty messages, so you post a picture and give a link where those interested can find more info, I understand that, it's totally different from stealing IBC's bandwidth for self promotion I think.

"Beer City Snake" has been contributing a lot to IBC, and though I've sometiles disagreed with what he said, and sid so, he is an active member, and that is enough for me to appreciate him - if not all his posts.

Back to the point: it's much more interesting to try and see what to do from an ugly duckling than to ponder if a swan should face right or left. In other words, respect the challenge of trying to make something out of "cr4p", yamadori and trees bought from bonsai sensei for $£€ x10xn is not the only way.

Lots of competition for people's time...IBC, bnut, facebook, blogs, families, jobs...I see no problem with someone posting links to "more info" on their blogs, especially if there are lots of pics involved. It's often just more efficient - why go through the bother of uploading multiple photos to multiple sites?

Anyway, it could be worse...this place is still more active than BSG (for now, at least).

You wear better in person than on line, Kevin.  Sorry.  (And "doesn't" -- with an apostrophe -- is the proper English form.  )

no need to apologize... i can dig it, as the same applies to you... as you already know Wink

(i assume you meant "were" rather than "wear"... and normally i wouldnt be so petty as to point it out because i knew what you meant, but gee whiz, wouldja give it a rest with the grammer lessons that i dont need... Rolling Eyes )

...now what was this thread about again... scratch

Respect and humility. That is what I have learned on my pathway with bonsai. And, that the size of your project is not that much important. It is rather ones effort to constantly improve his/her skills and to have fun. Reading your article about this pine I can see you have plenty of both. Urban areas are full of surprises for those with open minds and eyes.
