Eucalyptus as Bonsai

This is a Eucalyptus cinerea which is the local gum tree in this area so it seemed appropriate that I should have one in my collection. I bought this tree from a nursery at Yass and that was quite a few years ago. Unfortunately I don’t have any photos from “the old days” so you will just have to put up with the photos I took this week. This species was called Argyle apple by early settlers in this area although it has no relation to a real apple tree. I have moved this from the training pot to a real bonsai pot, although the bonsai pot is still a bit big, its a transitional move. The pot is by Australian potter Janet Selby and I think the colours suit the tree in an Australian setting. This is the work before. This is the after look. There is still plenty of work to be done on this tree but I am hopeful that over time it will develop into a fine small bonsai.
