New additions, September 18th 2018

Arboretum, autumn 2018

Great findings at autumn sales, such as the Colorado Blue Spruse (Picea pungens 'Glauca') bonsais, that I planted by the pond with some Juniperus x pfitzeriana 'Mint Juleps'.

Other new additions include a large Katsura (Cercidiphyllum japonicum) and a Korean Fir (Abies koreana). Also a whole new cultivar to me is a Weeping Serbian Spruce (Picea omorica 'Pendula')

After the first freezing night. September 29th 2018

Paulownia before and after... 

Manchurian walnut made 4 fruits this year, quite happy.

A thick coat of snow fell just in time to protect the plants, trees and shrubs against the immense freezing temperatures. The scenery is quite lovely, covered in snow.
