VLOG 11 and the making of a Kusamono

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

Autumn mood

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.

Rainy bonsai exhibition

For some reason unknown, and maybe needed to be searched deep in our souls, it nearly always rains and is a bit chilly (sometimes really cold) when we at Fuchi Bonsai have our yearly exhibition at The Japanese Gardens in Denmark. Even in a time of drought and heat, it suddenly changes overnight and rains cats and dogs when we are doing our small show. 😀

This was the eight in a row, and very well visited. Fuchi Bonsai is a small group of three people. Johnny Eslykke, Torben Pedersen and me, Morten Albek.

Below photos and a short 3 min. video from the Fuchi Bonsai show. There also is a new Q&A video for subscribers at the Bonsai Video studio, as well as the latest vlog no 8, if you missed it in the holidays. Next monthly theme will be focused on kusamono accents for bonsai, so be sure to get back and check it out. Make your subscription today and watch all content when signed up. First month is a free trial period as always.  For as little as 13 Euros a month you get a lot of bonsai information and video examples on going. You also can save and select a longer subscription for 11 Euros.

Springtime?

Spring has been strange recent years. Stranger than normal. Now we wait for the spring snow to disappear and warmer weather to enter the property. Come on please. 🙂

Shohin in Focus

The cold days arrived a little late this year. Colours have been reluctant arriving here at the season end. But the deciduous Cotoneaster finally shows some colour now. The bonsai area is a bit better protected from colds, being placed away from open ground, where frost easier finds it way with cooler winds. Winter preparations …

Tokonoma garden display

A wonderful day before winds will be ripping off some leaves the next days. The Tokonoma was used to do some recordings for next years new videos. I will later this year announce some news about these videos, so stay tuned. Cliffhanger intended. The tree is a Crabapple I have been working on for some …

The leaves leave

Frosts are hurrying up the leaves to fall. The beauty of late autumn shows, and with some early freezing nights also the leaf drop is forced to speed up. It is not necessary to pull the trees of their place on the outdoor garden benches now, because it will be warmer the coming days. The trees also benefits of a few freezing nights, killing some possible predators hiding underneath the bark and top soil.

Autumn arrives a little late

It has been an unusual hot start on this years autumn season. Finally the colder weather has found its way and nature do as nature must do. Leaves slowly changes their colours, and begins preparation for winter.
