Workshop at Nordic Bonsai

A nice day with nice people at Nordic Bonsai today. Students progressed very nicely with good material, and made some future trees. Especially one brave student made the “Albek-cut” and formed the basics of a big Yew, making a step forward to a Shohin-bonsai in future. Thanks for being there, to both my Danish friends and friendly guests from Sweden 🙂

Here a few snapshots taken in between teaching.

Cold spring meeting

Baby its cold outside. And it shouldn’t be. Its spring when I look in the calendar. Despite this and with a little help from the sun, we had a great meeting. A lot of questions and advice’s, and good work with the trees.

It has been pouring cats and dogs all Easter, so it is surprising that the trees are still going on with their spring thing despite cold and wet weather. It has been a very mild winter, so everything seems to be pushed forward by this, despite the disappointing missing sun and heat now. A good thing though, is that it will keep the trees from flowering too short and too early, maybe be a good timing for the annual exhibition within three weeks from now, in the Danish Bonsai Society. Crossing fingers, and everything might be just in time.
