Having proved so popular the Club held another day long workshop where members could benefit from some words of bonsai wisdom from Roger and Adrian two of the Club’s most experienced members. Our hosts for the day again were Club Chairman Howard and his Wife Andy whose lunch alone is worth going for.
It is days like this that can be really useful in for instance changing this Pine of Mike’s (above) into this. What was a tree with a straight trunk and a very dominant handlebar pair of branches can now after some drastic work be seen to have some movement and an obvious potential for a very interesting tree in a few years.
The report on the days work can be accessed via this link .

As well as passing on their knowledge these workshops also raise some money for the club funds so many thanks to Adrian and Roger for giving up their time to help other along the bonsai pathway and thanks also to Howard and Andy for opening up their home to us and providing such hospitality.
