Niwaki or “Giant Bonsai”

DH did his annual pruning and preening of our juniper. He does “cloud pruning” or niwaki. To me they are “giant bonsai.” And they are beautiful. I’m thinking of adopting one of his shots as the header for the blog. His photos are pretty magnificent!

Then there was the super moon event, which DH photographed a day early:

Then there’s our exuberant borders on either side of the path to the urn:

    1. Thanks for noticing! He looked at his pruning and saw another branch-let that needed removing, so he wants to take another photo before I use it for my header. He’s such a perfectionist!
