morning sunshine

There's nothing like the morning sun for taking pictures of autumn colour, especially after a heavy frost.

Thanks Pavel,

Autumn is probably the most beautiful time of year for colour.

I look forward to meeting you soon at Burrs.

Great trees and great colour but the picture of the Blackthorn does not show of the size and brilliance of the animal

I agree with Chris in previous post...."The Ballerina" is a lot more impressive in the flesh, looks good in pic but in the flesh... WOW !!

Well I'm probably the world's worst at taking pictures , or making notes for that matter, I tend to just do what ever I have in my head, and then think, "I should have taken a picture if that", I have a couple of early pics.

Collected in 1998, I aquired it a couple of yrs later, I think about 2000, anyway, took a while to get it healthy, some branches died, so just TLC for a while, after another couple of years started working the deadwood, which was extensive, lots of rotten wood to deal with, 2 hollow trunks, and very little roots , as I found out when repotting from a large box to slightly smaller one.
So just growing branches and twigs where I neded them since then, you can persuade these to backbud when you get them really healthy.
It was exhibited for the first time this year at UBI, mainly because it was in flower, needs more years to build up the twigs yet.
a couple of pics from 2006.

not very often I'm in the mood for this John, weather could have something to do with it !!!!!
the elm is coming along nicely, decided to grow a branch on the left side, so its been back in the pond basket for a couple of years, maybe another year and it will be thick enough to start building the rest of the branch.





The taxus had a few problems, the old front vein died, not sure why, but I replaced with a cutting I grew from the original tree, thats doing nicely now and in a few years will look like its always been there, but I may use the other side as a front, ???

Great to see John. When I visited you a few years ago, I was really astonished by your patient and dedicated work, and of course your friendliness to us. Your patience shows good results.

Best regards

Thanks Morten, and Micheal,
your words mean a lot to me, you are both always welcome in my house.

Will, I fell head over heels in love with her 12 yrs ago Very Happy and still to this day.

I'll keep you posted on their development John, next year both will take a leap forward I hope,
The more I look at the taxus I'm inclined to change the front as well.
