We had a bit of an informal show at Bodnant over the weekend. The weather was lovely and we got quite a crowed through. Thank you ever so much to Ken, Bren, Alan, Stuart, Stef and Jo who all help to make it such a great weekend. Bren took all of photo's which are posted below an a link to the full set.
Alan's idea of breaking up a privet he had into little starter bonsai to give out for free was inspired, especially with the children, I showed a few how to wire the branches to create shape and I've no doubt there's a few more budding bonsai enthusiasts out there! The show was informal, which seemed to spark lots of interest as to how the tree's were formed and maintained, one lady I spoke to didn't realised the trees continued to grow. We were free to walk around the gardens which is always a must if your ever that way. All in all it was a fab weekend.
Don't forget Octobers meeting this weekend we have the pottery workshops. Kickoff is at 9 with a 9.30 start.
