This morning, during a brief break in our relentless winter weather I ventured outside to check my trees and came across this group of hawthorns. Its early days in their development as shohin bonsai but a few have developed sufficiently to capture my attention. I will be giving them a little winter maintenance in the coming week and take some studio record pictures as the work is finished, which will be posted here later in the week. All of these trees are being developed from hedging material collected from my garden about 10 years ago. Most have had another life as larger bonsai.
