Blogs Added

I’ve added a couple of Bonsai Blogs to my favourites list.

I like to check who linking to me on my stats and if I like what I see, I return the favour. Both these blogs fit the bill.

Little Trees from Sweeden has some exhibition photos and some very tasty yamadori.

Craggy Bark Bonsai is a new blog. I don’t know Paul, at least I don’t think I do! Who knows who anyone is on the internet!!  The blog reminds me of when I started mine back in February 2011. Worth a look and a follow I think.

But it’s Wednesday!

Some photos taken on my Sunday walk in Redburn Country Park overlooking Belfast Lough. Yes, it’s Wednesday. How could I be so slack in taking 3 days to post?  Easy 🙂 I’m up to my neck in work, don’t be surprised if I even miss a daily post ❗ Like you’d even notice 😀

Here’s a panoramic from the top of the park overlooking the docks.

Only two walking partners on Sunday, Stephen, the Bonsai Baker, on the left and my much older brother Philip on the right 🙂 Don’t know if he looks at this much, but I guess I’ll find out !

I love spotting trees that inspire for bonsai and this park is full of them. Old beech trees can found everywhere and there’s also Pine, Larch, Rowan, Linden, Birch etc. This first one reminds me of the bank that the hobbits hid below in Lord of The Rings when being chased by Ring Wraiths!

This is like a Dr Who Baddie or some sort of giant octopus

This one is.. just darn pretty

The view overlooking Harland and Wolff Shipyard were the Titanic was built and launched.

Rowan berries in the process of getting stripped by the birds.

Interesting tree, hollow shari on this side but looks pretty whole until…

….you see the other side.

And here we return to the Lord of The Rings theme with Bilbo the Hobbit finding a new home.

My usual hunt for fungi

This is the usual sticker on dog waste bins…

But then some local vandals with a sense of humour decided to make a few alterations making it more of a Bullshit Bin 🙂

But this was the best of their efforts.

Happy Arthur’s Day!

Paint the Town Black 🙂
