Eclipse of the sun

We have had a partial eclipse of the sun here today, this is my picture of it! Seen on a paper, through binoculars.
I have not seen it before.

And here is how dark it was at the same time:

Still a bright day I think! The birds did not become silent, they kept on eating!

For the love of trees


That's why we do it, isn't it? For the love of trees.
Picture from last Sunday's bonsai meeting
and "wild trees" from my neighbourhood.

 The month of March: I repot some of my indoor and garage trees now and then.

My pomegranates (above and below) - they are small and thin but at least they are green and alive!

 A cotoneaster that I have also kept in the garage.

 Hanibal loves my zelkova trees... That is: he eats them! Maybe that is because there is no grass outside yet...

 Looking down: on our house from a hill, today. The sunshine has been fantastic!

 Looking up: when I turned my eyes up to the tree-tops I saw a willow tree full of catkins!

 ...and these on an alder: (below)

Spring is coming along, and tomorrow I'm going to Umeå for a bonsai meeting!
