Kaho Azalea in Flower

The large Kaho Azalea that I look after for my friend Gerry has been in flower over the past few weeks and is looking splendid as usual.

It’s the Cotoneaster Flowering Season again.

One of my favourite species for bonsai, they bring joy to my heart in summer when they flower and again in autumn and winter when they are covered in red berries. Here are a few of my favourites at the moment

I’ve been developing this one for 6 years and I have never seen it look better that it looked this week

This is a reminder of how it looked at the start of its’ journey in 2012

The next 2 were made from 1 piece of raw material. This is how they look at the moment.

Finally today, this is a new piece of raw material, that I acquired last year from a Spanish trader. I will air layer the top off and I should get 2 nice shohin cotoneasters out of this.
