Spring trip in bear country

Nice trip. I walked around take few pictures of trees and early spring flowers. And in one moment I spotted footprint, rather large and I thought for a while, "it could be bear". But I kept walking and admiring country. But when we have found few other footprints, I had strong feeling I would like to have cup of tea at home, as soon as possible :)










First spotting...

..maybe second...

...time to go ? :)

Repotting Vincent's forest

During the weekend I was repotting hornbeam forest. Too many roots, so it was time for some reduction. Thing went back to its current container made by Vinco. It easily could go into something smaller but nothing of that sort is available so far.  New substrate is pure Teramol plus rough peat. I hope it will make it easier to carry around. I still prefer mixture with zeolite but they are heavier so I try to avoid them in larger containers, since I'm getting older and weaker.

Double root was little annoying so I cut the top one. 



Quite a lot of removed roots on left, hmm? 


In new substrate, thoroughly watered. Sorry for lousy picture but with water in to heavy to move around.
