Title: June 2012 Work of the Month
Post by: Bonsai Study Group Admin on June 01, 2012, 09:08 PM
Good news everyone!  We're happy to announce the Bonsai Study Group Work of the Month.

This is simply a place for member to showcase their work. This could be a workshop tree, maintenance work, or simply a tree they feel is not ready for the Tree of the Month Contest just yet.  Anything from a seed you just planted to a 500 year old collected masterpiece wired and ready for a show.  New and used, young and old, casual hobbyist to the obsessed, amateur to professional.  No judging or voting.  All are encouraged to post.

No restrictions on the number of entries.  No restrictions on commenting.  You're still encouraged to start your own thread in the appropriate section of the forum, but this could be a great starting off point to display your work.

This is something brand new that we're trying.  As such, we've put a 3-month time frame on judging it's success.  If after 3 months it's decided that the members see no benefit we will discontinue the Work of the Month threads.

OK, June work of the month, on the last day of June. This is a juniper prostrata I got in a workshop with Ryan Neil at the Lone Star Bonsai convention in Dallas, in April. Ryan started a shari, that BTW is forming rounded edges already. I recently cleaned the bark and "feed" any possible spidermites. ;D  Can't wait to put it in a pot, ( but of course I will). Larry

AND another workshop tree. This one, a bougy, was worked on at a Baton Rouge workshop, only last Saturday, with Rodney Clemens. I can't believe it is pushing new leaves so soon. Rodney had me defoliate it so we could best edit the branches to thin them out. Great time to regrow tropical leaves, at the peak of summer solstice, right? Larry
