Pinus sylvestris “Trbouc”

Terra Rosha Bonsai

SI … Tokrat sva se s Samijem lotila mojega rdečega bora (Pinus sylverstris), katerega sem izkopal jeseni 2013. Kot material ni nič posebnega, ravno deblo, večina zelene mase daleč na konicah vej. Kar nekaj časa sem premišljeval kaj narediti iz drevesa, v igri je bilo več opcij.

And, since my workshop was on a BRT, and since I had just worked on one and took photos, well, you know, I had photos that now needed words to make sense of them, I guess, and something for the Cincy students to look at before I got there. And, before I confuse you more, I think we should begin with the post……

I did all the work a few weeks ago now, and had planned on publishing before June 17th but I just couldn’t manage it. I got sick again. I didn’t really know how sick. Here I am arriving at the hospital (Orlando Regional Medical Center). I had been sitting on my couch for a week previously. Exciting. My home-away-from-home.

I like trees better. Brazilian Raintrees are…
