Last post for the day: Trident Maple, Queen Victoria Agave, Ume, Sempervivum

Here is a Trident Maple, Victoria Agave, Ume, and a Sempervivum from my grandmother’s house in NY.  The pot the Agave is in was made for me by a friend I used to work with at Red Barn Garden Center back in 2005.

Fat Trident Maple Dug from MBP Bonsai Field

I traveled to MBP Bonsai this weekend for their Trident Maple Dig and dug two good sized ones.  The first and largest one was a mammoth to get out and I am stiff and sore from working on the beast.

Backside of the tree that was heavily carved with my new carving tool. A good amount of Van Aken modelling clay was used to seal the wounds.

From above.
