On Friday the 20th, I was at a bonsai club meeting. While I was there, I found out that my friend Dustin had gotten hurt a little while back and could not work on his tree that he brought along with him. So he asked me for help!
Below is an old picture of the tree I will be working on:
I unfortunately did not get a before picture... I had Dustin send me a picture of his tree and this is what he could find. When I worked on his tree, it was a lot more flushed out and had a ton of growth on it.
I trimmed and wired the tree. It was a ton of fun to work on this tree! Thank you Dustin for letting me help you work on this tree!
Below is the result:
And here is the top of the tree:
The tree has a good pin wheel look to it from the top!

I wanted to share some beautiful Powderpuff flowers on the blog...
Let me set the scene: I am coming home from being out all day and I have been expecting some flowers on my Powderpuff tree. I go over to check and see if it is dry (Which is was) and see a ton of flowers on the tree. I captured a picture of one very beautiful flower on the tree and did some magic to it. I think it looks really good! Below is the original photo (NO EDITING), color pop, and black and white.
Here is the original (With No Editing):
Here is the Color Pop:
And Here is the Black and White (Which uses an effect called Ansel):
I really hope you enjoyed looking at the photos.
I took all of these photos and I'm very proud of them.
Keep looking back because I have a couple of posts planned that you (the readers) will enjoy!
