Bonsai Europa 2015

The bonsai world is being rocked by the anouncment of the Bonsai Europa exhibition in Manchester, UK next year. The organizer is Tony Tickle and only here and there he releases some new info on the exhibition to keep things more interesting.
I am glad to inform that I will be one of ten demonstrators at the event.

A quick reminder to all of you. Our International bonsai exhibition is now less then two weeks away. There will be trees from quite a few countries; Austria, Hungary, Italy, Germany and Slovenia. I expect to see as menny of you there as possible :)

The demonstrators will be Andrea Melloni, Sandor Papp and a few others, me included!

This exhibition is going to be better then ever.

Prunus mahaleb 'Hail'

Since all trees grow a bit faster this year becauseof the high temperatures, it was already the perfect time to defoliate a few Prunus mahaleb. The first two are mine, the third one is from my friend Jože.

This one is in very early development so the crown is still very small/narrow.

This one has a much better remification, but the material is therefore much more shitty :)

I wish this one was mine too...

And in the evening we had quite a bad weather. Strong winds, lots of rain and some hail. Luckily the hail was small.

The pine

Here is a better photo of tne pine I worked on at the last workshop with Hans, as I promised. The basic structure is set. Now I have to wait a little for it to grow denser and then we come to the detailed styling.

Here is a photo of the pine from 2011.
