Hey everyone, HEY PRESTO it would appear that I am becoming a bonsai PRO??

There are many things I totally adore about growing bonsai Tree's one of them been the absolute creativity one can achieve in growing these trees in any way, shape or form your mind can imagine.

Sticking with the theme of the Tree and its namesake the 'Weeping Willow I am growing in that exact fashion and it promises to be incredible in a year or two's time!

This truly is one of my favourite trees check more info here as per wikipedia.org : Salix babylonica is a medium- to large-sized deciduous tree, growing up to 20–25 m (66–82 ft) tall. It grows rapidly, but has a short lifespan, between 40 and 75 years. The shoots are yellowish-brown, with small buds. The leaves are alternate and spirally arranged, narrow, light green, 4–16 cm long and 0.5–2 cm broad, with finely serrate margins and long acuminate tips; they turn a gold-yellow in autumn. The flowers are arranged in catkins produced early in the spring; it is dioecious, with the male and female catkins on separate trees.[2][4] https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Salix_babylonica

The above 2 are paperbarks from the acacia family, thorny Trees that provide a great food source for many African Animals from Goat's to Giraffe's to my favourite insect the humble honey bee!!

The intricate branch arrangement standard on all paperbarks holds great promise for these bonsai tree's too.

Another favourite my black Cherries, these like a cold climate however really seem to be thriving in these bonsai pots in what has been a rather hot Summer so far!

Another of my favourite trees the epic African Baobab Bonsai as above, this I planted in commemoration of my precious Child Jesse around the 13 th February 2020 and when he is old enough to look after him I will gift it to him.

Your collection is growing. Is your family starting to accuse you of going crazy, like mine has?

Nice to see your trees fully greened out. Most of mine are dormant and losing their leaves due to the cold weather in the northern hemisphere.

Hey bud where you been?? They are stunning truly bring me such peace and joy, such a fun exciting hobby too. They don't think I am mad.. haha no nature lover is.. Cheer$;)
