Bonsai in China

Bonsai in China

L1016779

Returning to China. From Dec. 7 to 11, 2017, China Penjing Artists Association will be holding “China National Exhibition for Penjing Artists” in Rugao city, Jiangsu Province, China. I will participate with a bonsai demonstration, and I am actually quite exhited to
be back.

It is remarkable what happens in China these years at the Penjing/Bonsai scene, and I am proud to be part of it. A report will, of course, be published later when I am back.

Autumn works it`s natural way

Autumn works it`s natural way

Autumn is one of my favourite times of the year. Despite rainy periods, there is a certain mood about it. Mornings with the smell of wet soil, mushrooms in between the garden trees and leafs turning their colours into traditional brown, red and yellowish warm colours.

It is nature and some times you have to go indoors when it gets too windy and too wet at once. I am currently working on some major changes regarding my bonsai life, and I look forward to announce it some weeks ahead. It takes place in the shelter of the house, and I really look forward to tell more later. Stay tuned. Cliffhanger intended. 🙂

Shohin book sold out

Shohin book sold out

I am sorry (and glad of course) that my Shohin-bonsai book is sold out, and not is available anymore.

It has been printed in a good quantity and the success of it makes me happy. I know it is used at a regular basis by shohin enthusiasts I have met around the world. Thanks for your always kind support.

The shohin bonsai book by Morten Albek. Now sold out.

I regularly get requests, but it is not reprinted.

Instead I will be announcing news about a replacement for you who wants more information and knowledge, about not only shohin-bonsai but also medium sized bonsai i.e.

All that at a later time. Stay tuned, and read the blog here, where news will be sometime published next year.

The Shohin book may still be found at some local bonsai shops. I discovered it at two shops last Noelanders event in Belgium. See you there, were you can stumble into me and hear more about my new project that is in the planning these months.

 

Bonsai summer time

Bonsai summer time

It´s summer time, and the Danish summer behaves as it sometimes does. It rains. It rains. And it rains.

Not much sun lately, but temperatures are alright. It might not be good for humans who wants to enjoy holidays by relaxing in the garden with the sun shining, enjoying the bonsai, eating diner outside – but is surely good weather for the plants. Days shifting between a little sun and then rain to nurse the foliage. Trees are clearly growing good, and benefits from this kind of weather. And there is a special mood in a garden after a night with summer rain that one can enjoy. Waiting for sun though. 😉

Enjoying bonsai before the rain

Enjoying bonsai before the rain

Heavy rain showers are announced, so I set up the daily display without using scroll or tables. Just protect these from the weather later. Sun is still shining, so it is about enjoying before we will be inside the house mostly the next days.
