Bonsai Blogger

I start things and after a while I forget. One of these has been my posting of good bonsai blogs that catch my eye.

After reading a post this morning from Salva in Malaga I felt the need to start this again. Click on the banner image below to visit a post from him regarding work on a Juniper. Blog now added to my ever growing favourites list on the sidebar. Obviously in Spanish, Google Translate to the rescue.

Rose Show

I had the pleasure of judging the bonsai entries at the Rose Show in Belfast yesterday. I small local flower show held as part of the bigger Rose Week event at Sir Thomas and Lady Dixon Park.

The bonsai aspect was small, our club supports the Rose Society by always getting a few entries in to fill the space and add interest for the public. As far as bonsai go, it’s not what we aspire too in our own displays with the usual low tables and cramped space. For that reason and the poor photos that resulted from inside a marquee, I’ll not bombard you with poor quality photos. I will however share some photos taken from within the park itself  showing both the roses and some nice trees.

First, photos from inside the flower show marquee during judging. The rest from within the park Rose Gardens and Japanese Garden. When I show the Rose name it’s because is a highly perfumes variety that my wife is determined to add to our garden.
