Today we had the first day or afternoon of rain since the crisis started! All this time we were scared as shit…but with lovely weather! So many Bonsai tasks were done during the last months while getting a nice tan! Among others cutting/pinching back the spring growth off my 4 Taxus baccata Yamadori. As well as some branch trimming, wiring and checking for those damn scale insects!
The little Shohin Yew of this story was a wonderful Yamadori gift from my dear old friend and super talented college Terry Foster when I visited his house in 1999. Now more than 2 decades on it is still a tiny Bonsai of just 21 cm in height in a custom-made Bonsai pot by my old friend Brian Allbright (UK). Say HELLO TO MY LITTLE FRIEND!!! 👋😉
Stay safe and healthy everybody!
Hans van Meer.
