European hawthorn #6

European hawthorn, Crataegus monogyna, collected in Croatia in 2009, in training pot. This tree already was a good bonsai. But then last year it got fire blight and half the tree died. I had almosot given up the whole thing. Now I htook another close look. And it seeems fine. The hawthorn will look nice pretty soon again. Ufortunateyl in our area it might wll bet fire blight again, which is a fungus spread by bees. There is no remedy. The part of the tree that has got it will die. I covered the rest with lots of fungicide and it worked.

Could well be, I have not much to do with diseases. Anyway, it's incurable.
