Malus in Flower

My Crab Apple has been in flower this week and the scent has been amazing too. I’ve been trying to capture a bee in a snap shot visiting the blooms but they either fly off or it’s been raining. Running out of time as the flowers will soon be over.

Conkers, Bonkers!

I always thought Ben was a little bonkers 🙂 This photo proves it…

This also proves it, a horse chestnut as a bonsai.

That’s maybe a little unfair of me to say this. Ben inherited this tree from his Grand Father who got him started in bonsai and, as you would expect, he’s rather attached to it. The tree is over 40 years old and has an interesting base. Leaf size can be made smaller and it is already getting there. I can hardly say it’s not suitable as I have plenty of trees that I’m sentimentally attached too and will never sell.

Another one of his Grand Father’s bonsai, this one is a Crab Apple.

Robert gave this one a look over as well. A few ideas for it’s future were discussed.

I thought this was rather funny too 🙂

Malus Coming Into Flower

Here are a few photos taken of 3 Malus that I have just coming into flower.

A few other Spring photos to enjoy too.

Away for the Winter

I lifted a few of my trees away from their stands today. They had finished their show for the year and are now being tucked away for the Winter.

This Fuji Cherry was nearly bare.

It is totally bare now 🙂

I’m going to look up a few of the photos from this tree during the year and do a season by season  post. Should be nice seeing the flowers fruit and Autumn colour all on one page.

This Crab Apple has also dropped all it’s leaves. I took the wire off before putting it away for Winter. All branches seem to have set from it’s wiring in the Spring.
