This little apple tree was in my old bonsai garden but now in the English side. I will still trim it as I have done the last 12 years.

Unfortunately in 2014 there is no award for shohin at nolanders bonsai show, so you will just have to enjoy this one for longer.

This is the sort of gate I have in mind to build.  I want to gather all the materials ready to build in one go. Getting  cedar shingles is not easy, and involves finding time to get to a timber yard in Canterbury.

Fence is underway.

I am starting to get the fence sorted to divide off the garden. It looks a bit ranch style at the moment buy it will come together in a few days. Start of the gate is in with the long uprights to put on canopy.
