Spring is coming!

Since the Dutch weather lost its way and we hardly had any winter my enthousiasm for spring this year might be overstated. But when growing Bonsai spring has nothing to do with weather, it’s all about the buds. Seeing them swell knowing soon your trees will brust open with leaves is when most Bonsai lovers end their hibernation. This year it looks like we’ll be in for a treat!

A wild Japanese Cherry youngling I bought last year with thick flower buds I can’t wait to see open.20170306_131615

A Maple with lovely red buds needing a proper trim when I’m sure there won’t be freezing nights anymore.20170306_132533

An impatient Hemlock experiment already leafing out. I still have no idea what to do with this one so I’m just letting it do whatever the fuck it wants.20170306_132552

The Beeches are generally first but seeing how the buds are not swelling yet I know it will still be a few weeks more.20170306_131717
