One of my favourite things to do, is paying private bonsai visits at friends. Without needing to do anything else than relax and do some bonsai talk among other things.
Yesterday I had two hours spare time in between actions, and called Martin Nielsen who lived nearby. I am not that often in the area, but luckily he was home and had a little time. I enjoy these private conversations and strolling around the garden, picking up tips and stories about trees. Martin has a great collection of trees, and a lot of good material in development. He enjoys bringing simple garden and Yamadori material to a high quality. With long termed planning and patient steady work stunning results are achieved.
The only thing that stopped the talk after two hours time, was a car with new summer tires and me going back to an art exhibition where my wife have a vernissage (today). Here some snapshots from the short but very nice visit.
