Vlog 11. October shows the beginning signs of autumn where deciduous shifts from green to yellow, brown or red leaves.
Removing the wire from a bonsai in training, should not be made in one go, but in steps. Finally I arrange a Kusamono planting with dry tolerant grasses and plants. All included in the October edition of the Vlog at www.bonsai-video.com Duration: 29:38
I simply love the autumn with all its colours and melancolic decay of leaves. Does it sound sad? Not at all. There is so much to enjoy, and still bonsai are showing their circle of life. Going towards dormancy just means that the trees takes a rest. Getting ready for next years growth.
The cooler air and freshness of autumn is wonderful. When it not storms and rain is changed in favour of sunshine. The season is not ending. It is just replaced with another period.
This is also a good time to arrange a Kusamono planting with drought tolerant specimens. Giving the plants time to settle before winter.
