Both surprising and satifying !

Posted by & filed under Willowbog Bonsai News.

Surprising and satisfying hardly does justice to yesterday’s March Bonsai Chat here at Willowbog Bonsai. We must have had one of the best ever attendances for these community days, which is saying something when you think that ” Chat ” must have been on the go now for perhaps a couple of decades !

As anticipated the wintry weather, particularly down the eastern edge of the region, rather seriously impacted our February Bonsai Chat here at Willowbog yesterday.

A pretty good start

Our first Bonsai Chat of 2019 was quite well attended here at Willowbog Bonsai yesterday. Mostly it was regular enthusiasts who took advantage of this community day. About half the folk brought along trees to work on but still managed a bit of chatting while they worked. Diane certainly got a bit done on her… Read more »

Following a couple of months of quiet Bonsai Chats, at least in terms of numbers attending, we had quite a busy day here at Willowbog Bonsai yesterday for our November get together.

Chat in our absence

The October Bonsai Chat here at Willowbog Bonsai coincided with the important Autumn show and sale of the Highland Cattle Society at Oban on the west coast of Scotland.

Our first Bonsai Chat of the autumn ?  certainly a few days in the past week have had a distinctly autumnal feel about them but Saturday itself was pretty warm, if not very sunny, in fact quite humid at times.
