Walking around in the forest trying to forget my privet problems I discover a Crataegus with a nice trunk an enough moment to make a good bonsai one day.
I decided to dig it out bud unfortunately I wasn’t able to take plenty roots with it.
The trunk is 10cm with an have a nice bark structure.
Hopefully it will survive.
I will give the tree weekly hb101 and will feet the leafs so much as possible.
Fingers crossed and hope for the best.

Possible future.

To calibrate the fact that my girlfriend almost recovered from a stroke last December we spend last weekend on the Veluwe and walked every day about seven kilometers in the forest.
We had a wonderful time and to be honest I never believed that we can do this again after December.
Pictures off this little trip in the album Lunteren 2010
Just one day at home another stroke, worse than the one before, blow all our hopes away.
Now she is staying in a hospital, barley able to talk and not even able to walk at all.
I ask God if He had not punish her enough bud no answer so far.
Maybe he is on holiday to.

Two small Junipers.

I both a few months ago.
I hope to fit them in a rock planting/landscaping one day bud I don't know if the roots aloud that this spring.
Its possible that I have to cut the roots first and let them recover in a shallow pot for one year.
First one before;

And after;

Second one before;

And after;

Black day

Just waking up and doing what we like to do looks so normal bud life can have some nasty surprises for us.
A stroke attacks my girlfriend last week and tanks to my little daughters attention how notice that something was really wrong and the good care off the hospital she is still alive and slowly recovering.
Full recovery is still unsure bud we are glad to still have here with us.
I realize that we can’t take anything for granted and we shut try to enjoy live when we still can.

Even een paar foto's van ons dakterras.
De afgelopen dagen waren de bomen nauwelijks zichtbaar en bedekt met een dikke laag sneeuw.
Alleen de bomen waar recent nog aan gewerkt is heb ik naar binnen gehaalt, de rest maak ik me niet zo veel zorgen over.
Sneeuw is een goede isolatie en beschermd de bomen tegen de schrale wind.
Toch ben ik wel blij dat het inmiddels weer bijna sneeuw vrij is en hoop ik verder op een zachte winter.
