Seven Sisters

There are seven large (though by no means fully mature) Beeches on Durdham down, all in a row, each with a very different character. I photographed these at between 07:45 and 08:05 a week ago, it was -5C and very beautiful. I hope in the future to emulate simmilar forms though bonsai with the same species. Fagus sylvatica make excellent subjects for bonsai and Walter Pall, a German bonsai inovator whose excellent blog I regularly visit, has had excellent sucess with recreating the natural habit of this species.
