The second day in the 60s with sun, so some of my bonsai are starting to sprout out so I spent some time last night working on them and took a break from working today to get some pictures.

This is a cotoneaster in a pumice stone that I pruned and wired in the cascade style.

This one is my hardy fuschia forest after a little pruning.

Very nice Joe! I've tried my hand at bonsai but can't seem to keep anything alive long enough for it to require pruning. I really like the cotoneaster as a cascade. You must have a world of patience.

Patience is #1 in this hobby. That cotoneaster I grew for 15 years before it was ready for turning into a cascade. It grew from a "bird planted" seed in my lawn when we lived in CA.

Joe, it just struck me . . .

you're a woodworker, and you do it while the wood is still alive!:)

Iwasgoing to ask how old those were. Now I know that I would never have the patience for this hobby. These are fun to look at, though.
