WInter Silhouettes
« on: December 01, 2013, 07:23 AM »
Thought it might be nice to begin a posting of winter silhouettes. Hope everyone contributes. So to get things started here is a current picture of my Shohin Japanese Musk Maple taken yesterday before it was placed in the pool cabana for its winter nap. JRob

Jerry LOVE the trees. How big is the Hornbeam pix number DSCO6345. Also the last group's Chinese Ash reminds me a lot of my Chinese Hackberry. Trees are away but hopefully later this week I'll get it out for a pix.

i personally almost like winter silhouettes as much as i do trees in full bloom. when the trees are naked they truly show the care the artist has taken to grow and develop the tree to what it is today. cant hide any flaws when the tree has no leaves

Fredtruck and Jerry thanks for posting some pictures - come on guys and gals with 241 reads some of you must have a picture or two you could add - everyone loves a little bonsai eye candy. Lets see what y'all are working on. Early development or more mature doesn't matter. We love trees in any stage of development so let's light up this tread and get some activity going! Pleaseā€¦...JRob

Here are a few. Many of my tridents have not lost their leaves yet. This whole week will be about 29 evry night so they will blast off soon.

A couple larger tridents.
