So...we are in the last days of fall color as its went and started dropping leaves. A reminder winter is around the corner. View attachment 165906
So in town today I looked the large leaves of the ginkgo's lining the street. Brought one home for size comparison. Picked the largest leaf which had fallen from my tree. mind boggling! View attachment 165907
He's quirky...thanks. Bought him when I used to put out mushrooms. (Decor for yard) He has a mushroom that matches his shell. But...I put those away when the pups came. They claimed the front yard...and their romping tosses large pieces of turf. So no breakables at ground level.
That is a generous thought Sorce, and you are to kind with compliments...thank you my friend...it's currently in a 10x5 bulb pot. When I asked Scott Lee (whom I purchased it from) what size pot to get for it. He said it wasn't ready for a pot yet...if anything go up in size to develop it.
The butter yellow is simply stunning...absolutely stunning. I don't feel I have given it justice at all.
You put some thought into this tree...that's kind of you. I'm not sure if I want that much going on. More simplicity. Though...flame I have seen shapes that have seemed more in depth of a flame,yet still flame. I am going to focus on such. Once it's dormant...I will focus on which branches to trim to help me get to that point.
Examples...some may cringe at...but I think they are quirky...more bold of a flame. Having the lower left branches on my own tree...I see making it easier to pull off. Ginkgo does not follow normal thought process we learn for bonsai as in what is acceptable in branch habit. Might be a "two flame" verses a three flame you spoke of...?
Unsure of the owners of the tree. Photos taken from Google Image.
I, with no expectations, stuck one cutting in pot of old perlite under my bench and it formed a lot of callus like it was about to explode with roots, and then I think my cats knocked it over. So I have a feeling they strike pretty easily.
