Playing with my new camera and more stands added to the "items for sale" page.

My Potentilla looked particularly vibrant today so I thought I'd have a play with my new camera.........and failed miserably.
I'm off to give the missus a telling off for not, (somehow knowing yesterday that I would suddenly decide to take some photographs), ironing the black cloth that I found by chance and used as a backdrop for my piccies.
Also all of the pictures I took of the Potentilla, apart from 1 overhead shot, washed out the yellow of the fllowers.......back to the drawing board......or possibly read the instruction book......after I've printed if off the CD that it's on......why do they do that to you ? it's a conspiracy.

However apart from the yellow flowers not looking great I got some decent pictures of my Boston Ivy & Persimmon, a couple of accents and some recent additions to the pot collection.
Have you guessed that this is all subliminal advertising to get you to buy the stands that everything is displayed on in these pictures...........must buy a Bespoke Bonsai stand.......must buy a Bespoke Bonsai stand.

I've also noticed that the majority of my shohin flow from right to left........bugger, bugger, bugger.......need to buy more trees

As usual please don't ask what the accent plants are......whilst I enjoy looking at each of them as they strut their particular funky stuff at the relevant time of year, their names do not enrich my life at all.

I love the glaze on this Erin pot.
Sincere apologies about the crease's in the backdrop, I did see them and thought they just might magically disappear in the photographs.

  1. Ooh trev, I'm loving the boston ivy, I bet Ozzy is happy.

    1. Thank's bud, the colours of the Boston Ivy are great when they first open out. I've sent Ozzy a text to let him know.
