I got home today and it had rained, so I didn’t have to water. Being the awesome gardener I am, I used the time to do a walk around.
And it’s popping in all the places I need it to. Very exciting.
So from there I checked the air layers. I checked the one in clear plastic first.
Which I had done about a week previous to the ones on this tree
And here is the “old ilex”
This one is almost filled in. I’ll need to do some thinning soon. Maybe at the CFBC workshop this friday (you’re all invited, the website is www.centralfloridabonsaiclub.com)
This magnificent ficus retusa by Mike Rogers.
If you don’t belong to a club it really doesn’t hurt to check one out. Just to meet people who practice this weird, particular hobby is worth the time. Or at least come along to have some pizza, we all need an excuse for that. Bring some beer too!
