Thank you Sally and Derek for posting these lovely spring images of your trees coming into leaf and flower this year. It is a stunning array of colour and blooms.
Here are a couple of photos from Andy. This Acer Palmatum ‘deshojo’ was bought from Swindon club members last year when they were “reducing” their collection. It has been overwintered in the greenhouse and has been recently re potted. It is looking in prime condition in it’s first burst of Spring colour.
Geoff a Swindon and Blackmore Vale Bonsai club member has posted this on our Facebook Group. I have re posted it so that all members can see what he has been up to during this lock down. Sorry for the background as it makes if difficult to see the main trees. Something to bear in mind when taking photos.
This maple was started from a cutting some years ago [I will try and find out the date] by one of the Swindon members [Robert] He was very good at growing any trees and used pond baskets and pruning to improve the girth of the tree. He then managed to seal even big cuts. Thereby improving the size.
Seems like so long ago now. These are the traders who attended our winter show earlier in the year. A big thank you to all of them for making the day.
We didn’t have a tree of the month at our last meeting. It was our Annual General Meeting. Members still brought in trees that looked at their seasonal best though.
I think I got them all…
First and foremost thank you all for coming to this years Swindon Winter Image Show it wouldn’t be the same without you all and it proves it is a thriving bonsai community.
