2011 was one of the longest growing seasons I remember; after an exceptionally warm Spring that prompted all of my trees into leaf weeks early, Autumn was very warm and my deciduous trees did not start to lose their leaves until mid-November. It has led to some phenomenal growth this year!
Here follows my bonsai Autumn of 2011 in images:
Cotoneaster microphyllus Shohin Bonsai I styled during September. Height 11.5”/28cm with a 4”/10cm diameter trunk-base. Owned and originally collected by Faisal Waheedy.

Crataegus monogyna/Common Hawthorn Bonsai. Height 28"/70cm
I collected this Hawthorn in 2004 after prepping it in the ground for 3 years
