For Owen R.
« on: April 03, 2013, 05:19 AM »
Hello Group,

Owen, I think these might be more familiar to you. Comments as you wish if any.
Good Morning.
Anthony

[1] A Eleagnus, not sure where it is from, China or other, but I suspect it was brought in from Miami. Grown as a cutting with just three leaves, about 15 or so years old.

[2] Catlin elm, from a root, might be about 18 or so years old. Front

[2 ] b } Catlin elm - back

[3] This is a Yatsubusa elm, and about 16 years or so.  Hoping for a 3 inch trunk and might need to be put it back into the growing trough. From a root cutting. Origin was Canada.

Also left a new root cutting at the base of the tree. Hopefully a new tree will be born.

Anthony, nice stuff  ;D.  I particularly like the Eleaegnus.  It may be the photo, but the branch coming off the smaller trunk in the middle seems a bit heavy.  The rest of the tree is sublime.  Could just be the photo. 

I also like the Caitlin elm is also nice.  It's nice to have bonsai where the back and front are both great.  My personal preference would be using the "back" and turning the tree about 10 degrees to the right and tilting the tree a bit. 

Nice trees and the history also is nice to know; something that should be documented by everyone with photos and notes.  You never know when your rooted cutting or bargain bin tree will turn out to be noteworthy 20 years from now.  Take a look at Bill Valavanis's or Walter Pall's work on photo-documentation.  Amazing.
