You will Never Walk Alone

They’re winning, we’re winning, they’re winning, we’re winning, we won 🙂 Nerves are wrecked!!

Today’s Dander

This morning we walked from Ballyholme in Bangor to Orlock Point. This is the next part of the coast line past were we normally walk. Here’s a map.

Compared to the Baltic weather experienced in my garage last weekend, today was actually very mild indeed.

Plenty of flowers appearing early

Stephen’s Raulii Repot

Stephen repotted his Raulii at my place yesterday. It was in a very shallow training pot and he brought along two pot options and we opted for the oval cream pot.

This was it before the start of the work. There was two possible fronts, this one with this nebari.

and this one which we finally opted for.

The root mass was shallow but was solid fine roots with no heavy stubs to be pruned. The previous owner had done a great job in the development.

Stephen taking a few record shots with his camera. Maybe he’ll actually get around to posting them on his own blog 😉

Washing out the roots to get rid of some old compacted garden soil.

an even bigger nebari is uncovered and was the reason for picking this as the front.

It’s new home.

The tree potted up.
