The 2015 collecting season is starting off with a bang! We’re exploring new areas as well as getting further into our other sites. It’s paying off with some of our best trees yet!
We’ve got plenty of news, so I won’t delay.
Our club, the Laramie Peak Bonsai Society, hosted Owen Reich for a weekend in February. It was a great time styling trees and getting to know him. Owen is very knowledgeable and talented. You can visit his site here: http://bonsaiunearthed.com/ — Above is one of his tool holsters. They’re handy for bonsai tools or collecting tools!
Here are a couple of trees we worked on. First is one of Steve’s ponderosa’s. It turned out great, and is growing vigorously this spring, even after a very radical bend in the main upper trunk. — Next is my Trident maple that Owen brought a new pot for. It’s my first Koyo made pot. I love it!
This is one of the collecting sites. Such a beautiful place!
How about the trees we’ve been collecting?
And a couple of big ones!
Last but not Least, our website is up and running! All trees will be loaded there from now on. This blog will not change otherwise though. Check it out; We hope you enjoy it! http://www.backcountrybonsai.com
