It is now well into Autumn at Shibui Bonsai. Cooler weather and shorter days mean less time spent keeping trees watered. Some of the Shibui Bonsai trees have responded to the cooler nights and put on Autumn colours. Here are some photos from the past few weeks to show you what I’ve been seeing this year.
And a few more trident maples showing Autumn colours
We have not had any really good cold nights yet this autumn so colour on the deciduous trees is a bit subdued this year. A couple of Japanese maples have simply turned brown rather than the normal bright colours they are famous for.
As soon as the leaves fall I will begin end of year pruning and thinning.
