Reprieve for an old friend.
Been part of my life for 40 years but is diseased and cannot be saved it should have been felled today. Friday the 13th at 7.00 a.m. the wind was howling and the rain was fierce the tree's luck was in. However it will not last going Monday weather permitting.
The tree has a massive girth and is estimated to be c 160 years old.

Roy,
Minnie the cat will hopefully have a good few years left, but like me she is getting old.

Lovely avatar by the way, be nice to see more pics of your bonsai.

glad to hear your cats ok Tony & the Pyracantha does flower well & of course the berry's follow so much so that i have to take many of them off to help preserve the trees energy.
heres a pic of one of my maples (sangko kaku) sounds like a koi, in autumn colour : -

Sorry to hear this Tony trees are so precious these days don't see many mature ones about in peoples gardens these days.

Bonsai looks amazing Roy but I wouldn't of expected any less from you.
