Hope not. I am trying to mark student assignsments and have been unable to look at a pencil sharpener this morning without THAT image coming back!

I think we'd better stop this psrt of the conversation until Kev gets a "Total Nonsense" forum board up and running Laughing

Hi,
On a very cold, but bright day in our polytunnel.
John contiued working on his juniper today. Refined the shari a little and moved a couple of major branch 9/10th into postion.


I further carved my cascade blackthorn.


I carved and wired a small larch.


Chris potted up his oak into a john Pitt pot.

Interesting larch Jeremy. I like it, but I wonder if it wouldn't look more in balance if you carve that upper dead wood to make it smaller and thinner. Right now it looks too large in comparison to the cascading trunk.

BTW, who made the pot?

I’ve noticed in the background of the picture of your son the pot in a wooden ‘frame’. Can you tell me what the purpose of the frame is?


Hi Jaco,
John, (of boris the brave fame). made the frame to attach guy wires so he could move the acer branches into place.

Here is a better picture.

Hi Roger,
Yes it is still a little heavy. I did remove a large portion, but looks like it still needs some more removed.
I think I'll leave it for a little while to see how thing develop next spring and the volume of the foliage thereafter.
