BC dig......What a day.

Best part of today's ventures was the fact that my wife decided she wanted to tag along....Up until today she has showed pretty much no interest in bonsai.....We got a late start so we didn't get to the Smith-Gilbert Gardens till around 11:00...Sorry Dave I didn't get the grand tour or a handshake....I figured you were one of the 3 Dave's that were in the demo Rodney was giving.....I had already committed to showing up for the BC dig between 12 and 1 so we had to sneak out of the demo.....I'll post some pics we took st Smith-Gilbert in another thread.

The dig went well but like usual I broke a few tools. The 4X4 came in handy when at my wifes advise I decided to just finish the dig by pulling it out of the hole.  Vin you were right the trainer pot was not big enough.....I had to add a 2X4 for extra height. I cleaned up the the broken roots and with the help of my kid I got it potted up tonight...Thanx Devin for the help.

Here are the pics.....

Some daytime pics.....

Fall colors and the BC training pot is ready...

It's gonna be cold but I'm digging it anyway.....Found a BC for free on the ATL CL so I figured it was the wrong time of year but if I don't get they are cutting it down....I'll give it a try.

It's getting down to the mid 20's tonight so the little ones are in for the night....Nice fall colors on some of them.

Stopped by Plant City Bonsai on the way back from fishing....

Finally got me a trident maple to play with....It's not much size but it was cheap....Here is the tree I bought and some other pics as well.
