Guys,

Love this thread!

Yes Victorians are blessed with great golf courses but that's OK its not that far away - have played Yarra Yarra, Royal, Metropolitan and The National during The National Seniors a few years ago(Legends is awesome) and the trees all around the Peninsular are a treat as well.

Hello all.
Got back from the gold coast where i played "The Glades".
Spectacular morning with little to no wind, sunny skies and not a crowd to be seen.
These tree's really struck a chord with me I believe them to be Poinciana - Delonix regia.
Some great flat topped African style specimens around the course and surrounding suburbs.

They look very much like Jacaranda and I can't help but think that they would react similarly - meaning difficult to Bonsai but not impossible.

One of the fabulous things about growing bonsai is as you get old and decrepit your trees get old and beautiful

Yup, they are the poinciana...there are still some flowering around the traps. I've got a couple on the go....they are incredibly fast growers, and greedy as all get out for water and food.

Hmmm.... I have a new favourite thread.

I have been travelling for work a bit lately ... a bit weary... so today I have just pottered around my garden, trimmed a bonsai here and there... and spent some time on this forum.

And look where I am... As a member of the National GC (albeit I am currently on hiatus ... played Long Island last week... but I digress, that's another story) I am glad some trees from NGC made it here. Excellent!

No doubt I'll post here from time to time when I am playing a bit more.... soon.
Tending bonsai teaches me patience.
