Bad Weather for Bonsai

I had heard we were getting a bit of bad weather this evening but nothing to this extent. Over the past few hours pictures have emerged of the damage due to stormy conditions. I came home to find all my trees exactly where I left them. Not one turned over or fallen 🙂

So if you live in Ireland and have bonsai, make sure there secure and safe. And if you don’t just be careful. Here are some images today from Cork. Thankfully no one has been seriously injured.

All Ireland Hurling Final Replay

Well were nearly there (again) when Cork will take on Clare in the All Ireland Hurling Final replay. For the Second time in a row the two teams will meet again. And for the second year running The All Ireland Hurling Final needs a replay to determine a winner. Before last year an All Ireland Hurling Final didn’t happen since 1959. So very exciting times. This Saturday at 5pm Cork will take on Clare in which hopefully Cork will come out the victorious.

COME ON THE REBELS.

Maple Defoliation

Just realised how to reblog something properly. Anyhow, thought this was really interesting as i recently defoliated one of my potential projects, but got a lot of dieback, I didnt research into how to do this properly before hand, big mistake on my behalf. But i recently have discovered three new buds which i will add to the projects page soon. Good job lads.

Bonsai Eejit

Stephen came down to my place on Saturday to get his Maple sorted. The canopy was extremely full and the inner branches would start to suffer unless we did a partial defoliation. This was it before we started.

As you can see we had a few other with us making the most of the day.

Look at the mess he made of my carpet.

Is that them all?

The after shot. Light now penetrates the canopy and will help maintain vigour on those inner branches.

This video shows this tree back in February being repotted.
