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 ! It… Read more »

Four days of workshops with Mr. Peter Warren just completed here at Willowbog Bonsai. The following photos are mostly going to be out of sequence because of the way I have already dipped in to use them elsewhere. They were taken by Scott and my thanks to him for that. Each day began with a… Read more »

Low key May ” Chat ” day

Posted by & filed under Willowbog Bonsai News.

We had a somewhat low key May Bonsai Chat day here at Willowbog Bonsai last Saturday which was a shame as it was a glorious early summer [ late spring ] day. So nice that regulars Jane and Diane moved their table outside to work. Jane is half of our sole husband and wife couple… Read more »

Posted by & filed under Willowbog Bonsai News.

We had five participants for Willowbog Bonsai’s fourth monthly workshop of the year last Saturday. It was a gloriously sunny spring day and I anticipated the studio getting too warm as the day progressed.

Hectic day !

Posted by & filed under Willowbog Bonsai News.

My apologies for not having posted here for a while. I have in fact missed both the July Bonsai Chat and monthly workshop and my only excuse is that we neglected to record any part of either day in a photographic sense. Yesterday, Saturday 5th August, was Willowbog Bonsai’s eighth Bonsai Chat of the year,… Read more »
