I am sure there are better pictures out there...but Akiyama did this Juniper....
I started with this Larch
And Ryan did these two, a Pitch Pine
Obviously, the camera skills were top quality. Nothing is in focus, at the right height or the right angle.
All in all it was a good weekend and it was enjoyed by us all.
I followed that up with a couple of days in New Jersey which was an interesting sight into an old part of the States. I must admit though that I grew up in a house that was built in the 1600's so it is all relative. Seeing some of the destruction that the Hurricane created was a shock, some houses destroyed and others left almost untouched.
One of the highlights of New Jersey was coming across this in a park..
and this reminder that I perhaps should get my web shop thing up and running...
Still it gave me some food for thought...and there are a lot of ideas floating around at the moment. I have one more full week of work and then it is time to take the foot off the pedal and sort my home out, sort some stuff out I am planning and figure a way of enjoying life at the same time as enjoying bonsai. This last weekend was a great reminder that there is more to life than trees...although I did take the opportunity to go searching through the cliffs to see the trees in their natural habitat.
And so for the last time in a month, and the second time in two days....I am on my way to stansted airport.
Onwards to Katowice!
