Fraxinus No.2 naked

Almost all leaves are down. Nothing to hide now. Best time for deciduous bonsai to check if progress was achieved during the growing season or not. Feeling satisfaction myself. Long way ahead though. 

Prunus spinosa

Tree with not yet typical autumn color. Since we had several nights with temperatures below freezing point I think leaves will fall off before turning yellow. Fungus on bark on one of the pictures shows that much bigger part of the trunk is dead already, as I was expecting. In spring bark will be removed and dead wood carved and treated.
