A regular update on the life and times of John Hanby’s Newstead Bonsai Centre……..
Topical Times – Short but ever so sweet!
Just had to take some pictures of my big Acer Palmatum in it’s autumn coat. The smaller trunk had good colour last week but the taller tree has changed over the past few days. Quite an achievement really, considering all the wet weather we have had. The orange is becoming redder by the day and the changes in different light situations are simply stunning.
This tree was awarded an extra special prize for ‘a perfect nebari’ by Mr Daizo Iwasaki at the fifth Gingko exhibition in September 2005.
The tree is now pictured in it’s growing pot. It was leaf pruned this summer and responded really well. Hope you enjoy the pictures. Isn’t it amazing how dying failing leaves can be so magnificent before they go……..and soon they will be gone! A short blog but ever so….
