    The good thing with that N is that you know what to expect and so do your plants. Plants here don't know when to go to sleep or wake up Lol.

    Typical weather for us these days, even though I don’t like it (a bit too cold). Temperature in C.

    Your plants are very fast asleep N. Tbh I think with those temperatures Hybernation seems the best idea all round.

    Hello, around here the temperatures have risen, today we have between 20ºC and 9ºC, hopefully they will go down because many maples already have swollen shoots and if they continue like this in 8 or 10 days they can begin to grow.
    Another thing that is happening in this area, are the earthquakes that are being felt every half hour approximately today there have been 2 of 3,3 mbLg 1 of 3,6 mbLg and another of 4,3 mbLg and 1,8 a 2,2, non-stop day and night, so we have been for several days.
    Cheers

    Good evening J, that is so worrying, is that normal for your area, or is this out of the ordinary ? 20 °C in January is very warm, but I know you are in a hotter climate. That being said we had 14° C today so the high temperature is being experienced in a lot of places at the moment.

    With all the virus problems, the last thing you need is another disaster.
    Do keep safe.

    Wow! It sounds like an average month of June - 10 years ago ^_^

    Earthquakes : my nieces who were raised in Nice know about it, no wonder. The glasses in the cupboard would play a clinging melody.

    What was more surprising was when my sister who lives in Rochefort told me that one day, she heard the thunder on a perfectly clear day and saw the tile floor in her living room waving like a flag in the wind.

    Thanks to global warming, we'll have more of these : the ice-caps are melting, the glaciers in Groenland too. Less pressure on the ground where there is already a series of fractures and volcanoes, thousands of tons of ice will be gone, more volcanoes eruptions like the Eyjafjallajökull in 2010 - even the name will make you shrink from fear !!!.

    Clouds that will make the earth colder, lots of sulfur gases, bad days coming, global warming will be followed by a long, deadly ace age, few will survive.

    Sinners, repent !

    Good morning, everything that is happening is not normal at all, it is not logical those temperatures on the dates we are here, it should be quite cold, but it is getting hotter, for the next week they say that the temperatures will drop, hopefully it will be So, if it doesn't cool down soon, I'll be posting photos of my maples with all the leaves.
    and then there are the earthquakes, every day you have to pick up something that falls from the shelves, in less than a month we have more than 200 earthquakes and seismologists predict that they will last for several weeks, they call it a swarm of earthquakes what is this producing, Grenada is on the edge of the Eurasian and African tectonic plates, which approximate between 4 and 5 millimeters per year.
    Here you can see some damage and people staying in the street for fear that buildings will collapse.

    I think Fraser was probably right. But let's hope for all our sakes he's not.

    I told my kids before Christmas that we had every reason to optimistic what with Covid vaccines coming and (a controversial president) going but now I'm not so sure about either. We've been holding our collective breath for so long, I'm not sure we'll remember how to breathe again.

    My daughter and I look at our trees everyday and enjoy their beauty. We’re grateful for that calm moment together.

    Here’s a yamadori we stare at a lot lately. :)

    Trying to stay positive and enjoy this beauty while we can. I mean no offense. My dad worked for the forest service his entire career battling wildfires. It’s very tough to see what’s happening but there’s still a lot to look at and we have the time to do it.

    It’s a limber pine. Rough estimate is 300. It’s been in the box for 5 years. About time for a pot.

    Yes I agree it's very important to stay positive, great history regarding your Dad. How dedicated he obviously was. Not seen too much these days.
    That is a fantastic pine, one to be handed down to your daughter in the distant future. It will bring her amazing memories of your special moments together.
    Thankyou G for the information on an amazing tree.

    Here’s a couple from your part of the world. A very famous yamadori guy lives in campbell river.

    Can’t wait until spring. :)

    Hello, @Harcuvar - I found this article about bonsai grower, Peter Wilson, in Campbell River.
    I learned that "Yamadori literally means “collecting plants in the mountains.”
    I like his quote: “The foliage of a tree is today’s news,” he said. “The branches are old news. But the trunk, that’s history.”
