I will take some soon. when the weather clears up. there all outdoors so go through the the seasons like normal. i have just repoted and they have been through a good pre spring hacking roots as well. 1 is a 38 year old boganvilla tree which i have just prepared for flowering so no greenery on it but when it flowers its unbelievable. I've had it 14 years. but I will post pics for sure when in full flower and iwagumi has grown in. a pre season teaser.

so i will do a picture now and update in 3 months.

Like the Fukinagashi Style bonsai, and the land Iwagumi looks great next to it.

I've got a few Bonsai in training myself, there currently planted in the ground growing on and hope to have them transplanted into training pots in a few years.

thankyou for the kind words.it does take a while but once it starts to develop after being in its new pot the fruits of your labour shine through.
Good luck

The tree is still in progress.
The front sections main branch had some die back so it needs to fill in again.

Hi all,
I was being a tad lazy in my quest to find out,
They are both plants that occur in the UK as well as Spain. Anagallis arvensis ("Scarlet Pimpernel") is a common native, and S. rupestre (Rock Stone-crop) a long established "alien" plant on dry-stone walls etc.

We have a native Stone-crop that looks similar (S. forsterianum), but that is a much <"rarer plant"> in the UK.

cheers Darrel
