My newest planting of The Hundred Acre Wood is starting to feel the effects of Autumn.
In the spring when they were new, the trees were pretty spindly, but they plumped up nicely in summer. The freaky cotoneaster got even freakier! But I’ll wait until winter to trim her.
Two of the trees, the tall larch and the cotoneaster, lose their leaves, so are doing the most changing. The larch, especially, is looking unwell, but that’s seasonal. The chubby evergreen juniper is just happy and green.
I love seeing all this change happening on my own balcony!

And in the same pot!?!!
Yep, same pot. As time goes on I will keep their roots and bodies pruned to keep them small, as a traditional bonsai. I have successfully done this once, years ago, and I love the effect if a whole forest in a pot! It’s a good practice in patience for me…
