In a Few Weeks, When the Snow Is Gone...

03/30/19

Satsuki azalea displaying a blend of white with a touch of pink and soft green. The flowers dominate right now, but it's no accident that the color of the pot enhances the deeply grooved trunk and nebari. An earlier shot of the same tree appears below

It’s not yet flower time here in northern Vermont. But in a few weeks when the snow is gone - no guarantees, we've seen snow in May - we should start to see some color

Meanwhile I've moved some of my bonsai from my cold frame/garage onto the covered front porch. The rest will come out soon. It's an annual ritual

The first three photos in this post are part of a photo album by Andres Alvarez Iglesias on facebook. The title is Mis Arboles (my trees). The forth photo appears on Andres’ website.

 

Another azalea showing off. Judging by the size of the flowers, you can tell it's a shohin size bonsai (Shohin is Japanese for small)



The flowers are gone. With a little luck (and diligence) the birds will spare the fruit. Looks like shohin crabapple in a Japanese pot



Here's the same tree that's at the top of the post. A little earlier in the season, before the flowers completely take over. I like the way the tree's structure is a bit more revealed than in the shot above. This one is from Andres' website
