Shohin bonsai preparations and Vlog 17

Slowly the autumn moves forward. Temperatures drops and it is time to stop feeding the trees. I remove all used organic fertilizers at this time to let the trees slowly slow down and get ready for dormancy. Deciduous trees will slowly turn their leaves into brilliant autumn colors when it gets colder. Autumn is  great …

Kisetsu-en, Garden of the seasons

Finally a Japanese name is settled for the garden. I have been searching for a good Japanese name for the garden for some time now. Something that expresses the mood of the garden, and has a good sound too. Kisetsu It was so simple as I first found it. Kisetsu means seasons in Japanese. No …

Tokonoma in the garden

I really enjoy taking a tour around the garden in the morning, viewing bonsai setting new growth rapidly at this time of the year.

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. 🙂 Pictures from a white garden that should be green.

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.
