Alders cleanup

A bit of 'cleanup' for 2 common Alders (Alnus Glutinosa).
First one was 'cleaned' 2 weeks ago. Second one, on 27 august during bonsai-tour demo in Deinze, Belgium, organisde by the Flemish Bonsai Association for the 40th anniversary.

Still prebonsai, don't mind leaf size etc..

European Hornbeam - update and virtual

This is my prebonsai European Hornbeam (carpinus betulus) that I cleaned up a bit during the bonsai-tour of the Flemish Bonsai Assocation (VBV) in Deinze on the very sunny sunday of 27 August.

Yesterday I took 5 minutes to create very basic virtual in windows Paint. This is approx the overall image I want this tree to have. Hopefully in 5 years it will get close to this, and by then branches will also have thickened a bit.

Local happening of the club 'De Leie', part of the Flemish Bonsai Association, because of the 40th anniversary this year. Focus is on introducing the visitors in the hobby and also showing the several stages of bonsai, the work behind the bonsai, the road behind the 'finished bonsai'. With small demo's (maintenance, wiring, perhaps some carving, etc..)

I'll be there too, with several prebonsai, raw material, almost-bonsai, at one of the tents alongside the bonsai-tour (approx 2km in total).

Where? => city of Deinze, in the province of East-Flanders (Oost-Vlaanderen), Belgium
When? => 27th August 2017. From 10hr am to 17hr pm
