November is here and this month, as the weather cools into winter, let’s consider bonsai
styling.  What is "styling?"  Check out our Bonsai Gallery page, and in the section labeled
"A Dogwood in Three Seasons” take a look at the winter view of Carol’s dogwood specimen.
 A properly styled bonsai will have a great look during any season, with good ramification
(branching) and leaf pad placement. 

We can learn a lot about our trees by looking at the bare branches in the winter. As the 
leaves from our deciduous trees fall, take a look at their silhouette.  Make a photo, mark it up,
and decide during the winter months on a styling plan through future trimming or wiring. 
You can then be better prepared for the major trimming and styling decisions that are 
usually made in the spring during repotting. 

Bonsai is a great hobby with very interesting discussion topics, and it is even more interesting
when we share it with friends.  Join a local bonsai group and learn from their years of experience. 

If you are in the North Alabama area, come visit with us at our November meeting, where
we will discuss bonsai tool maintenance and care.
