For some years now every spring the sun burns the leves of my maples. That's the reason why I decidet that my bonsai nead some more shade. There is allso some protection from hail. See the story in the pictures.

Yew from Seeboden

I got this yew last year, in 2007 on a workshop in Seeboden, Austria, where I allso gawe it the first styling.

Sadly I don't have the photo from the begining. This is how it was after the first styling.

This spring I made this virtual.

And yesterday I started to work on the design from the virtual.

The final result for now.

So it begins

So, the season for digging up some tree species has com. Today I and my father went in the mounteins looking for some yamadoris. We came home with full hands of them.

The jin on a juniper yamadori

This juniper is actually a ''urban yamadori'', because I dug it out by our neighbours this spring. Today I decidet to make some jins. Wireing and bending and so on will come next spring. This will be a hard nut to crack, but I don't worry a bit.
(The jins that I made now aren't totally finished yet.)
