R.I.P Peter Adams

Just heard that Peter Adams has sadly died. A true artist in the bonsai world.  I think I have every book that he wrote in my collection. His drawings were inspirational. Rest in peace.

These words below taken from his joint Facebook Page and written by his wife Kate.

‘I am so sorry to report that Peter died suddenly, but peacefully, in his sleep last Sunday, November 24. It was very unexpected, we had just enjoyed a marvellous visit together on Saturday and he drew a sketch of me as I sat there. His death has been so very hard to accept, especially since we planned to leave for home together next Monday, December 2.
There will be a memorial at a later date. Details will be advised on this page. His ashes will come home with me soon. 
I miss him so very terribly.’

  2. Crying as I read this. He was a wonderful person. I got to meet him at the 13th Carolina Bonsai Expo. He was guest artist. I will cherish his critique of my tree and the brief time we conversed the day before the show. Very kind humble man. My prayers and condolences to his family and that he touched in his life. God’s speed Peter.


  3. To Kate – my condolences. Kia kaha – stay strong. Peter, I enjoyed working with you on my pine group when you visited New Zealand with Kate. You are with me daily as I work on and admire my trees. Thanks for the learning. Ian Gear


  4. Am in tears Peter. It is a long time back to 1983, when Bill Jordan and I came and worked in the nursery and stayed for tuition, joined you and Sheila for a meal, discussed your next book etc. I still have your sketches on the wall, and trees in my back garden. You were my inspiration. R.I.P. Marion. England UK
