I wouldn't say that is "just another" blackthorn, Peter. I'd be delighted to have it in my collection.

Swap you it for a packet of salt & vinegar and a bottle of Tizer? Nah, didn't think you would!

Ditto Fiona's comments but I'll raise a Double Decker and a Strawberry Mivi. I think I owe Lee Kennedy an apology. They are the stars of British bonsai. Beautiful tree Peter.

I would have gone wth a Double Decker too, but the last one in the cupboard constituted dinner tonight.

I am rapidly falling in lurvvvve with Blackthorn. It's got everything going for it - flowers, dark intriguing bark, interesting trunk shapes, nice foliage colour, and good bit of celtic mysticism thrown in for good measure. Must remember to post an updated on the one I got from Lee "Mr Blackie" Kennedy some time soon.

Pretty "Lady" of a Blackthorn. She looks like she's dancing in the pot. Lovely in everyway! I wonder if they are available in the US? The pot is lovely as well! Thanks for sharing.

I wish I had a blackthorn --- not sure they would be happy here in this climate, though. I look forward every time to see the ones from you all in the UK.

AYE RIGHT!!! "just another blackthorn" understatement of the year a wee beauty or what????
forget all the sweetie indulgences swap my missus flower [sorry luv Smile] lol! lol! ,just a thought scratch: the bottom trailing left branch, I think I would remove it, seems a touch heavy at the base
to "wax lyrical" the flow and elegance of the rest of the tree is dancing , a STUNNER!! .

ummm!!!! chrisps,chocholate and Tizer. I'm tempted but she who must be obeyed has me on a diet after easter excess so i will have to say no this time.
Alex, sorry but i have one of them already and cannot afford another so also no deal.
Thanks to everone for the nice comments. The pot is by my favourate, Gordon Duffett. The tree is Chuhin size 15"/38cm in training 7 years.
