Bonsai in Bunratty

Workshop 06/02/2016

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.

A Munster Weekend

Bonsai Eejit

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.

Mark’s Juniper

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
