Quiet time

All is quiet at the bonsai front; Time to kick back and enjoy.
Just the basic maintenance of  feeding, watering, weeding and pinching to be done.

My Deshojo maple is coming back in to leaf after defoliation and is once again showing the bright red spring colour.
Pines are being fed heavily in preparation for next months candle cutting.  Most have been left to fully extend and will be cut back fully in mid August to start with needle reduction.

The weather has been reasonably warm, but not much sun.  That is ideal weather for mildew to develop, so I am keeping an eye out for any signs of the disease and have my fungicide ready just in case.
