Prunus Mahaleb

This spring my dear friend Andrew gave me the chance to dig this wonderful tree.
The pictures shows the tree four weeks after it was yamadorised in April 2016.
Right now it is a trunk with a green "leaf-ball" on its base.
So I decided to show this early picture so one can see the movement of the trunk better.
I am really looking foreward to work with this season`s growth in late autumn ...

Acer Campestre

For about five years I passed this tree on my job-tours
untill I got permission to dig it.
The size of a Fieldmaple for bonsai should be laid out in a relativ large scale (imho).
So will be the design of this tree.
It has a more masculine appearance with its rather coarse and stiffy ramification.
But I really like the powerful and charcterful trunks of Acer P..
The taper of the trunk will the top-feature of this tree.

Prunus Serotina

I collected this species because of the nice blossom-risps in spring.
Hopefully I will be able to show you some of these next year.
Prunus Serotina is a so called neophyt to a german (european) habitat.
The origin of this species is North America.
Because of its vigour and the strong urge to gain for light,
P. Serotina had managed to suppress P. Padus, the original inhabitant.

The tree is almost as high as wide as deep.
Well, a lot of carvingwork to do at the end of the season ...

Some new yamadories

In late spring this year, I did some yamadorising.
A Prunus Serotina, a big Fieldmaple and a mighty Wild-Cherry
had been on my shortlist.
I always wanted to have this species in my developing-programm.
Here are a few glimpses of the trees.
I will introduce them more detailed later on ...
