Yet another month has passed, and another bonsai club meeting. We met in the usual place as we always do and had small enough numbers with 5. But all in all it didnt matter there was plenty of chat and craic about everything Bonsai.
We then had a talk about everyones trees individually against are great backdrop. Will have to get a proper one for the next meeting and some decent lighting. I hear blue is the colour to go with 🙂
Just want remind all that we will have next meeting on next Friday 21/03/2014 at 8 pm in the same place
Wading through the rest of the photos now. I’ll be doing the accents as a separate post along with a few other themes for the weekend.

Sad news today, Harry’s book was my bonsai bible back when I started bonsai in 1993 and I’ll never forget the wacky adverts in the Bonsai magazine.. Notice from the family below, my thoughts are with you.
It is with great sadness that we must announce that Harry Tomlinson died on early Sunday morning the 2nd March 2014
As many of you may know Harry had been suffering from alzheimer’s for a number of years. Unfortunately his condition had deteriorated rapidly during the last week.
We hope that many enthusiasts throughout the International Bonsai community will have been inspired by Harrys bonsai teachings, artistry, books and good sense of humour.
Letter of condolences may be sent to Greenwood Bonsai Studio.
There will also be an open book of condolence alongside one of his many bonsai creations.
A memorial service wil be held at a later date.
Petra, Corin and Paul Tomlinson
