Categorically no Chatting !!!

Posted by & filed under Willowbog Bonsai News.

I can confirm that there will be no Bonsai Chat this Saturday !! Snow everywhere , drifts 2 and 3 feet deep , just not worth even trying to clear the road in , I doubt if the public road will be passable by the forecast anyway , see you all in April !
