Spring flowering bonsai

Post  Richard S on Sun Mar 26, 2017 11:07 pm

It's Spring here in the UK and most of my spare time is being taken up with re-potting, which is fine but I thought that I should take a few minutes out of the hectic schedule to photograph my flowering trees. I only have a couple of Cherries and a Quince (which has still to open most of it's blooms) but they put out a decent display most years for about a week or two and I usually manage to miss the chance to take any pictures Rolling Eyes

Anyway, on the basis that if I show you mine you might show me yours Cool here you go!









If anyone else out there has any Spring flowering bonsai images they'd like to share feel free to add them to this thread.

Regards

Richard

Thanks Alain.

John, that is one ancient looking trunk! I love Wisteria (it is a Wisteria isn't it?). Mine's not flowering yet but if it does (it did last year but of course.......I didn't get a photo) I'll post an image.

Thanks for sharing.

Regards

My wife Sue gave me this for my Birthday last December (from All things Bonsai nr Sheffield) and it has been so far advanced I was a bit concerned,It has been looking like this for over a week now and it is only March.The last few weeks before that I did protect if there was a frost forecast and all seems to have turned out well.

Thanks, Richard, for your comments on the Wisteria. It is a bit leggy this year, I'll have to chase it back after flowering. I may be able to get another pic after it flowers more fully but headed out of town this weekend.

Prunus spinosa.  I know, still looong way from the planned white cloud of blossoms.   Rather few cords of white pearls right now....  But do not have anything better.








Prunus mahaleb

Getting ready for the blossom's fiesta....

Alain, your little prunus is like some kind of ink paitings.   Just a few strokes of brush to evoke the pleasant emotions of spring.  The first pic is my favorite one...

Spring? Autumn? What's the difference between friends eh!

If it's flowering now it's worth posting.

Cheers
