This weekend saw the return or the Wirrals prestigious Bonsai show at Gordale garden centre. It didn't disappoint. There were quality trees from members.
Sunday brought the attention of many public visitors who were introduced to a northwest bonsai character, Mr Tony Tickle. Bringing not only wisdom but the Bonsai New Talent heat for the northwest, with which I was persuaded to enter.
3 hrs to work on raw material. Lots of pressure. Made it out the other side with a reasonable tree, but MikeyP Tony's student styled a first class tree, winning the heat. I was just made up one of he Wirral clan bought my the tree I'd worked on!!
Thanks Wirral for a great day!!!
