Capel Manor Bonsai show 2016

27 Sep

Sunday saw this years Bonsai show at Capel Manor, Enfield.

A very good standard of trees on show again this year, and after the summer lull in sows it’s great to have an event to attend. 

Pictures are all in the you tube clip below. 

Next up is Heathrow show.

Garden project.

I am still alive, although the second half of this year is not going to plan. 

I wanted to have my outdoor Tokanoma project finished by now but I have had to delay that one you can see it in the background. 

This area used to be my koi pond, but now filled and settled its time to develope it into the garden. 

We had a good length of fence replaced in May, and I managed to rescue all the old fence post well I couldn’t see them go in a skip. So project is to build a zig zag bridge to link deck from office through bonsai area back to gate, to avoid walking on the grass during the winter. Something like this I have in mind.

I have a dead line in October to get it done, but the Tokanoma will have to wait.

Looking forward to getting on with it and the looming winter show time.

O and I just booked a flight for the world bonsai convention. ✈️🇯🇵🌊
