My thermometer recorded -19 Celsius the other night. We get temps like this now and then but I think it’s been a few years since it has been this cold.
Here are a few of my more ‘valuable’ trees in their winter protection. Korean Hornbeam, Ginkgo, and Japanese Yew. The only special treatment they get is that I shovel snow on them whenever it is available.
Thanks to everyone who has been watching this blog through its first year. Despite my infrequent posts, it has done much better than I expected with over 33 000 views since its inception last February!
Anyway, back to bonsai! This is my first work of 2013 – some thinning and coarse adjustments on a Siberian Elm. I posted some work on this tree back in July.
