Repotting season

Here are a couple of quick iPhone shots of trees repotted this week. Ryan Neil of Bonsai Mirai came to the studio to help improve my skills and some of the trees at Bonsai Shinsei New York. Ryan has forgotten more than I know about bonsai, so I value any chance to learn from him. 

A big Rocky Mountain Juniper I acquired from Bonsai Mirai in 2011. This is its first bonsai pot; a beautiful, slightly large Sara Rayner semi-cascade.

My Scots Pine 'Beuvronensis' that has been in development since 2004. Hope to remove all of the hardware next spring.
