Field Dug Trees Make Fun New Projects
It's always fun to begin a new bonsai project. The April meeting kicked off the growing season with the start of several new projects. Thanks to Carlton Buck's work hand digging a number of field grown trees on a chilly spring afternoon, several trees with nicely formed trunks were available at the meeting/workshop. Carlton brought back a selection of three evergreen types, including spruce, yew and hemlocks. Participating members drew cards for their tree and most began doing some preliminary—first exchanging ideas for the a future bonsai design, along with some pruning or re-potting at the meeting. It will be exciting to see how these tress develop of the next several seasons.
