Season of Mists and Mellow Fruitfulness

Crab appleI have just seen how long it is since I updated my own blog, I’ve been busy doing the Somerset Crafts Facebook and the Taunton and Somerset Bonsai Club website as well as a few health issues,at they say, to deal with.

Inspiring Company

Bonsai Eejit

My weekend with the Bonsai Society of Western Australia is complete and I’ve had today to reflect.

I aimed to help inspire the spread of bonsai into the southern end of Western Australia, and on reflection I think they helped inspire me in return.

Such a great group of people made up of not only members of BSWA and Bonsai Workshop, but some new faces from the local area. It looks like WA could soon see a new club emerging.

Day three was my demo followed on by the rest of the workshop.

I have too many people to thank for their assistance over the weekend but Dianne deserves special mention for her sterling efforts in keeping me out of trouble for 3 whole days. I can safely say I have many new friends in the southern hemisphere.

Here’s a few pics from the event.
