One of my favourite blogs Centro Bonsai Tenerife had some photos of the awards from this years Kokufu Ten
And this Japanese blog has some interesting shots from the green club.
I always like to post a few other bonsai blogs from time to time to show what else is on offer if you look for it. It’s especially good if you can find active blogs with regular quality posts. Here are a few that are active at the moment.
Danny Use at Gingko is posting some great stuff at the moment and pretty much on a daily basis. I especially love his posts showing trees developing over a number of years. If you haven’t checked it out yet, go back through the older postings. Just click on the image below to visit.
Next up is a blog from Tomas Kovsca, in Slovenia. Language shouldn’t be a barrier to bonsai. I use Google Chrome as a browser to translate text within a post. It’s not perfect, but good enough to follow the meaning of a post topic. Again click on the image below to link to this blog.
I just have to promote Mr Warren again by way of encouraging him to keep up the postings from Japan and elsewhere on his worldwide trips. He’s a very unassuming chap who does little in the way of self promotion. His work speaks for itself, so perhaps promotion isn’t required! I personally hold him in high regard, just don’t bloody tell him I said it Click image below to view link.
Next up is Dylan Fawcett’s very educational blog Bonsai Prelude. Some great posts with plenty of reading too.
The first bonsai blog I ever followed Kingii, in Spanish but a very active blog with some stunning trees being produced. This is why Spanish Bonsai is ahead of the game in Europe. Also the El Tim or The Team linked closely with Kingii is worth following.
I have to finish off with Peter Snarts Willowbog Chat blog. I have a vested interest in it as I helped Peter get it set up but Peter has embraced the blogging concept and is always adding good quality and informative posts. Well worth subscribing too for the regular updates.
That should keep you going for a while All images above are links. I have come across a few new start up blogs lately. Once I see the posts pick up, I’ll share them here too. Share the love people If you like what you see, why not follow the blog by signing up for notifications by rss, email etc. This will act as encouragement for all and we’ll see even more posts.
I follow most blogs I come across with Google Reader and over the last few years have created bundles for others to follow.
Things were getting a little messed up on my reader and I decided to delete the older bundles and create a new bundle of 281 blogs and feeds.
Apologies to those who were using the older bundles. I’m not sure what went wrong! You will now find everything in the one place with the 2013 Bonsai Blog Bundle. Click on the image below to subscribe or you can find it at any time on my sidebar near the bottom.
If your blog is missing from the bundle and you want it added, send me an email to bonsaieejit[at]gmail.com and I’ll give you an add.
I’m on the European Bonsai Forum among many others. I tend to read and lurk more than post there. Something I should Try and do something about!
I felt compelled to share a link to this post titled ‘Enrico Savini. Progetto futuro bonsai school’ I’m pretty sure everyone can read it without being an enrolled member. That said, it’s worth signing up to for those of us with Native European species.
Why am I sharing a link to this post? Simple, It is refreshing to read an honest account of bonsai in Europe. Enrico’s thoughts on Yamadori, tree pricing really struck a cord with me.
Don’t take my word for it, read it for yourself. Just click on the image below to visit the post.
Happy New Year to all.
Just the usual resolutions for me, loose a little weight, get fit etc. It’ll never last
I also plan to keep plugging away with this blog on a daily basis as long as I have something worth sharing and you keep looking at it
Noelanders Trophy is fast approaching and I’m hoping that my European Photojournalist Harry comes through with photos from the event
I also have my trip over to Willowbog to take part in Ryan Neil’s first UK workshop.
So as you can see there’s plenty in the offing.
The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.
Here’s an excerpt:
About 55,000 tourists visit Liechtenstein every year. This blog was viewed about 280,000 times in 2012. If it were Liechtenstein, it would take about 5 years for that many people to see it. Your blog had more visits than a small country in Europe!
2012 has been a fun year here on the blog. I have done my best to post daily to keep everyone up to date not only with my bonsai happenings but also directing you to other sites and items that I found of interest. You must have liked it, as I reckon I’ve had 279,000+ hits on the site this calendar year
I thought I would share a few links now from some of my favourite posts from the year and also some of the most popular. But first up is your favourite pages.
ENJOY and have a great night tonight.

Another great post on a blog I follow, this one was on Danny Use’s Blog showing the creation of a Hornbeam Forest over a number of years. Click on the image to visit the blog. It’s well worth following as regular posts are made with interesting content. Not like the tatt I serve up
I haven’t shown any of my favourite blogs in a while. I used to share interesting posts here from time to time.
As most of you know, I follow other bonsai blogs with a passion and I like to return the favour of a share or listing.
I was impressed with this one today on Jose Luis Sanchez blog, Mi Pasion por el Bonsai, showing some great photography of great bonsai at the recent Alcobendas 2012 in Spain.
Here’s an example:
and here’s a link ALCOBENDAS 2012
Also a few other links to photos taken at the same Exhibition.
Bonsai is strong in Spain!! Enjoy.
Felt I had to share these photos taken at a recent Exhibition in Kyusyu, Japan. At least I think that’s where it was! I have been allowed to share these from Yumiko’s blog, I presume it’s a local show. Love the cloth colour for the tables, trees really stand out.
