Tony’s Garden

Most of these have probably appeared on Facebook over the last week but I’ll share anyway. These where taken in Tony’s garden. It was great to see some of these trees in the flesh having only seen them in photos and websites over the years. It’s hard to not be impressed with the quality of the Yews in his collection but what most interested me was the quality of the ramification on the Hawthorn. Also nice to see some humble projects being worked on as well with rock plantings catching my eye. I only wish I’d seen it in Summer for a closer look at the accents, my other passion. Most were already in their Winter state. A few pots here as well that caught my eye.

Up at Allotments

Tony gave us a look at his yamadori collection at his allotment. If only he had the forethought to arrange a dry day. 🙂 Thankfully Sunday saw a blue sky. These are some of the snaps taken over a few visits, some very exciting trees, especially some of the demo trees set aside for Bonsai Europa 2015 .
