Prolific budding!

This is really a pure joy to my eyes. Because, this means that my hard bloddy work this winter in january and february was not in vain. These photos are just a few details of carpinus orientalis branches and trunks that were dug out three months ago.
Do you remember this tree!!!

There was a discussion on IBC that the tree is rootless. And I was telling the story that the collecting was very difficult and in pure stone, that I wasn't able to extract more roots, but that I believe in shooting power of such a big and old trunk especially from carpinus family. My experience was telling me that everything will be ok. Now, the tree is fully covered in big fleshy buds.
So, all these pictures are from the same tree, that one in particular.
Iwill further provide photos in the future.

I want to inform you that I have a good reason to be inactive for such a long time. It is not the case that there's nothing to do with plants or in the garden but...I had a traffic accident with a motorcycle and I broke my right arm very badly. I had a surgery two days ago and they implanted me a metal bar in my upper arm and a few screws. It is still very painful and it will take some time that I will be able to do some work with my right arm. I was released home and now i can start rebuilding the strenght in my right arm slowly.
Soon, in a few days time, I will publish my new website. Of course, this blog stays where it is.
Thanks guys.
I will put some new pictures soon, my wife Duda will help me do it.
Life goes on.
