Fall in Kentucky

Post  Randy_Davis on Wed Oct 05, 2011 5:57 pm

All,
Just a simple little forest that's still in need of a few more years development but it's colorful none the less. I just love it when fall gives us such lovely colors to look at for a few weeks.

Beautiful colors. Reminds me of my youth in NY. Very evocative image.

PS Watch out for the peanut gallery criticizing the pot.

Rob,

NUTS to the peanut Gallery!!!!!!!!!!! As I said, it's in development! If you can't get by that, then your just too anal and need to make a pitstop and releive yourself.

Nice Randy,

I did a show in Ft Meyers last weekend, and there was a very similar planting of elms on display. I liked it because it is similar to the bald cypress groves we see at a distance on the drive between here and Ft Meyers. Very calming ! Wish we had fall colors down here !!

I like your response, reminds me of General McAuliffe's response to the German envoy who asked for a surrender in the Battle of the Buldge.

I really like it Randy. We're a few weeks away from fall color here, and then it's hit and miss.

Since you said it has a few more years of development ahead of it, I'm not sure why anyone would question the pot. After all, it's not at a show or anything.

I hope you'll share some winter pictures of it.

Pot? What pot? I didn't even really notice the pot until someone mentioned it.

Nice color - looks very peaceful.

Hello Randy. Beautiful colours on the forest. I was hoping for similar over here but were looking at the tail end of a hurricane over the weekend. Damn. I hadn't noticed the pot either...What with the colours and all. Best you sit on the couch next to me Rob for mentioning it in the first place Laughing

Thanks all! It just keeps getting better every day.

Will, take those trees in and protect them from that hurricane! Hope you get some good coloration anyway!

Russell, I'll make sure and take some progression pictures this winter for you. I usually take one before I prune and wire and then one after. It's not going to look like much I'm sure, but it's an annual process to develop branch structure.

Thanks! I bet it will look better than you think, especially after a trim and wire. How big is it, and what's the age range of the trees?

Russell,

Never measured the height but the container is a standard nursery seed tray so it's something like 16-18 inches or so. The trees are all about 4 years old from a batch of seed that I planted from my tridents in the garden. I just collected more seed for planting next spring. They are just loaded with seed this year.

Gosh, I just love the fall color of maples. Here's a Trident maple that I've been working on for a number of years and this time I put a pot in the pic that will be used next spring when the tree gets root pruned.

Rusell,

Here are the images of the tree without leaves. The first is before I did some trimming of the branches, the second is after.

Thanks Randy!

That's a pretty bunch of seedlings. It would be really nice on a stone slab, as well as a shallow tray.

2012 has given us a colorfull suprise which was unexpected with such a dry hot summer! Amazing what a little late rain will do to keep the fall spirit alive and kick'n.

Well gang,

This forest has fnally gotten a new container to live in! Just repotted it and it's finally in leaf. Just thought I'd post a final picture for this project. Now all I have to do is wait for fall to come again so I can sit and enjoy the colors!

ta ta for now,
R

p.s. Let the peanut gallery speak out! lol Very Happy

Thanks Randy, I like the development and the pot. I'm jealous though, my tridents are just beginning to have some swelling of the buds. Other than the short growing season, I do love living in down east Maine.

The pot is fine but it doesn't go with the stand.
