It might be warm and sunny here in San Antonio, TX, but tomorrow morning (01/29/19) will bring freezing temperatures especially in the “Hill Country”. Be sure to water your bonsai tonight and provide protection with a frost cloth or moving trees up against the house. Do not use plastic as it doesn’t insulate and still may cause branches to freeze and die.

Growing Bonsai has become my new hobby… It was raining for a week and I thought it was right time for hunting semi grown Neem Saplings!!!
Went for hunting saplings near the banks of Vaigai River and because of rains, was able to pull the plants easily…
I was able to pot 10 New Neem Bonsai’s… I pruned pruned the leafs, branches and stems…
Here are the pictures of my new additions…

My bonsai collections!!
A shallow pot of buttermilk yellow and a thick carpet of moss draw the eye to strong, buttress roots. From there the trunk might be considered too straight, but I always draw feelings of strength from its regularity of form. The frame is, perhaps, a little too exposed; the foliage a little too focused at the ends of the branches, but this a voyage, not a trip. There’s time.
Bonsai is all about time. Time and timing. What to do, when. We all start in a rush, those of us who find this pastime. We want results! We spend money, jump into hasty decisions, kill trees… Some of us abandon; move on to other pursuits. Those of us who stay the course learn that bonsai is all about time.
Rules, guidelines, principles, depending on how you read them, dictate ratio, form and style. Isosceles trangles, primary, secondary, tertiary branching, first…

Juniper Squamata Prostrata.
The northern reaches of Sydney are comprised of high ridges and deep gullies. Hills are frequent and steep. There are many trees.
Atop the ridges, the trees grow short, thick and scrubby. As you venture lower into the valleys, trunks lengthen as leaves strive for sunlight. Along the sides of the road you see them cling to rockfaces, cascade over escarpments and flow over ledges, roots working down through slender fissures seeking soil to plunder for nutrients and water.
The sheer number that lie fallen the morning after a storm bears witnesss to the shallowness of the soil and the scant grip the roots often have on their stony situation. And then there are the bush fires…
It’s not easy being a tree.
More than a few times, when people learn that I grow bonsai, I have faced allegations of cruelty; I force trees into tiny pots…
