Hey everyone, Merry merry and all that.. So one of the main things I love about bonsai is the level of creativity it allows.. There really are no limits to what one can do!
When I say love and light, I really mean it, everything I try and do is with love and caring, so much so that I even grow a few bonsai in the shapes of hearts! This black Cherry promises to be amazing in a few months/years!
I love flat top paperbark trees and my aspirations here are to make it as flat as possible so pulling all branches down horizontally with wire already only 6 months old starting to look amazing.
Above I have my epic paperbark bonsai which I decided to grow sideways, why not sure?? Not too many trees exist in this orientation so try it I have!
My son Jesse's Baobab growing so nicely this will be gifted to him on his tenth birthday or when I know he is old enough to care for it!
Weeping Willows have also recently just become one of my favourite trees, these are generally found near dams and rivers require lots of water and do as they are here, 'WEEP'...

See List of Salix species
Willows, also called sallows and osiers, form the genus Salix, are around 400 species of deciduous trees and shrubs, found primarily on moist soils in cold and temperate regions of the Northern Hemisphere. Most species are known as willow, but some narrow-leaved shrub species are called osier, and some broader-leaved species are referred to as sallow (from Old English sealh, related to the Latin word salix, willow). Some willows (particularly arctic and alpine species) are low-growing or creeping shrubs; for example, the dwarf willow (Salix herbacea) rarely exceeds 6 cm (2.4 in) in height, though it spreads widely across the ground.
The generic name Salix comes from Latin and was already used by the Romans for various types of willow. A theory is that the word is ultimately derived from a Celtic language, sal meaning 'near' and lis meaning 'water', alluding to their habitat.

These two Jacaranda Trees germinated at the same time.. So thought why not leave them here together and grow them in a heart shape too, and so thats just what I plan to do.
Nature the incredible!
Love and light, have an amazing Christmas and incredible year ahead!
