Sunny in Wales

Post  Jeremy on Sat Apr 09, 2011 5:13 pm

Hi,
It is said, "use it or lose it" So, I have been busy the last 8 months studying.
I have not neglected my trees, but I have not had as much time to tend to them as in the past.
Today in Wales it is a glorious sunny day, I had worked hard this morning on my Uni projects/modules, so after lunch I spent a few hours in the garden checking my trees. Also as i could't make Bobb's 2011" bash, i was feeling a little left out.

Here are a few pics. A mixture of my developing trees and raw material.

















I plan to allow all my trees the next 3 years+ in prep for the future. In the past I have been a little too keen to show my best trees. This has been a short term gain, but the tree can suffer and delay the true development I planned. I am learning. Still a long way to go....

It was good to get my hands dirty again.

Of course there is alway my little helpers working on my trees, even when I don't want their help.

Nice looking materials Jerry. The virtue of patience is one that every bonsaist should learn and have, if you can wait 3+ years,these trees will have better potentials.

Best regards and good luck to your studies

Someone less charitable than I may suggest that it is already too late for you, Jerry. Wink

Some lovely material there mate, both styled and raw. I have to admit to a quiet admiration for your work, which is why I usually try to locate myself near you at Burrs!

See you on Sunday!

Hi Pabling,
Thank you.
Good to hear from you. Hope you and all your fine trees are thriving.
Studying is a very good discipline for me and very good for my trees.

Thank you mate.
Not having so much time is a good discipline for me and appears to be very good for my trees.
A bit of healthy neglect with the discipline to watering, misting and feeding my trees has been the order of the day since last September and will continue for the next couple of years.
I still plan to sell about half my collection over the next year, 10-15 trees, (Dragon's auction is September), so I can refine and concentrate on getting the best out of my trees in the future.

I've never been so jealous in all my life, I could hang out with those trees all day long

Wonderful material, I adore the first image but that Blackthorn is wicked personified; then again not having a BT myself I adore most of them. One of my favourite species and for reasons beyond me I still cannot find a raw one at the right price.

I missed a corker at BoBB which I was discussing with Will; I so wish I had gone overdrawn and gone for it. Oh well, one might turn up eventually.

Mike,
Thank you.
I have always enjoyed seeing your posts here of your fine garden and trees.
You must take a trip down to our workshop at Dragon bonsai at Bonllwyn
Chris Thomas has a few Blackthorns left for sell at very resonable prices.

Ah, that's probably my wellies, that's wellies as in wellington boots.
I have asked you before, a gentleman would "keep my girlfriends out of this".
