When the Wife’s away…

…the boys will play 🙂

My wife is off to watch Take That in concert in Dublin tomorrow and to mark the occasion, I have 5 guys coming over to play with trees.

Stephen is going to do some major thinning out on his two Satsuki Azaleas seen below.

Phil is coming to sort out a few of his trees that have been staying here of late. Also wants to take a few trays of Satsuki cuttings 🙂

Stan is bringing his recently purchased Chinese Juniper for a little work.

Michael is coming fr the first time for a look around the garden and to ‘pot on’ a sick Deshojo Maple. It had a hard Winter and was pot bound.

Mario might even make a guest appearance from Dublin!

Really looking forward to a good days craic and of course, I’ll be posting the results here 🙂

The Bonsai Art of Japan Episode 5

Just Uploaded to You Tube today, the latest episode of the Bonsai Art of Japan.

My favourite bit has to be the female voice over. How high a note can you hit when you say ‘SANDPAPER!!’  Love it 🙂

Mr Fujikawa, ciggie in mouth, is also a touch of  genius 🙂 Great to have the actual master taking part in the videos. Click on Mr Fujikawa below to watch the video.
