Last weekend we had our first workshop this year. Thanks Ian and Phil both from Northern Ireland Bonsai Society . It was wonderful and very productive weekend , with lots of new thinks. We could learn/refresh re-potting and main styling technique, we could meet some higher level technique too (grafting itoigawa juniper to heavy trunk juniper ).
Here we have some pictures.
My trident maple
and in pot we have pick up for it ( Didn’t have final product picture 😦 )
my new tree Korean Hornbeam before
and after ( i’m going to get two trees of it. I will air-lay top part in coming season)
Mark’s Chinese Juniper before styling
Rey’s pine ( mugo we think?) before
and after. Ray was very happy with final product. we were too. 🙂
some grafted junipers.
and of course lovely, friendly atmosphere.
A big thank you to the Munster Club guys for having Phil and I down last weekend. It’s taken me to Wednesday to recover enough to post this 🙂
Our usual talk though of the main trees to start.
Shouldn’t Mark be wiring?
Taking a photo or praying to the bonsai gods?
And he’s the cheek to say I look old :-O
