The Saturday chat at Willowbog was well attended once more despite all the weather could throw at us,rain, wind, hail and I think the sun did manage to shine a little, but not for long. Enough of the weather report here are some photos of the day.
Today's Tokenoma display and accent choice.
Mike giving David C some advice on his White Pine.
A nice image starting to show.
At the last novice workshop Bob had this garden center Cypress, which I clipped a little and showed him how to apply wire. I then set him some homework, to wire the whole tree and bring it back for a tweak.
He managed to get most of the wire on, well done Bob.
After a bit of tweaking this Shohin sized tree looks much more open and will be potted into a better pot in Spring.
Here Peter gives some of the newbies some advice.
Now a rare sight indeed, Tony S actually doing some work on a tree.
Graham W working on his nice Chinese Juniper.
As was John H.
Kieth was also working on a Chinese Juniper.
Anthony R doing some fine pruning of a Korean Hornbeam.
Before I finish I must say Jean's soup was more than welcome on such a cold day.
