Today's novice workshop was a busy and successful one which all the student's seemed to enjoy very much.
The display tree, a large Chinese Elm.
With a Common Juniper for company.
The students gather.
Peter even arranged for SANTA to attend. Even though he does not normally wear a flat cap.
Peter starts as always doing a talk about each students main tree.
New boy Gary seems to be thinking " Whats he doing to my tree ".
More trees to be worked on.
This Larch turned out quite good.
Another Larch made into a windswept style.
A type of Hinoki Cypress was also started on it's way.
A small Pine.
Yet another small Pine.
David working hard on another Pine.
As was Antony.
Scott meanwhile was removing old leaves and weeds from some of the sales trees.
Another Pine .
Finally a Hawthorn.
A good day, enjoyed by all attending.
