Back To Reality

After a weekend away at Burrs I finally made it back to home at 11pm last night. I wish I had booked today off work but sadly I had to trudge in this morning. I’m only now able to wade through about 800 photos and video clips taken over the 3 days. I’ll be posting some of these during the week to show some of the exploits, wonders, weirdos, and even a few trees for the event 🙂

Tony invited me as a guest to Burrs back in March, an offer I’d be silly to turn down. I had heard a lot about Burrs from many sources, some were great reviews but some were not so complimentary. I’m a great believer in making my own mind up. My own verdict, I can truly state that Burrs is a great environment for bonsai learning, one of the best I have experienced in 20 years. As you know I count friendship as a major part of bonsai and Burrs has also added to that experience. I have made many new friends, some old ones met for a catch up and a few folk who I talk to on a weekly basis on the net that I was able to finally  meet in the flesh.  Looking back the nay sayers, in the main were those who had never been to Burrs, I think that says it all! Make your own mind up, sign up for 2015.

To Mr & Mrs T, thank you yet again for a great weekend, your  hospitality was second to none and I truly enjoyed every second of it, well maybe not the early morning noises coming through the wall of Burrs room!!, but you know what I mean. 🙂

Here are a few sample photos but many more to follow as I wade though the folder. I think these capture a little of what the weekend was all about.

  2. Fantastic weekend Ian, was nice too meet you and everyone else who was there, im still buzzing from it all, highlight of my Bonsai year.


  3. Nice catching up again Ian, a great weekend of bonsai with a great bunch of guy’s, roll on the next one and see you next October at the show.


  4. Ian…..looks very interesting

    Is attendance at this event by “invite only”

    Is this for more experienced folk or could newer enthusiasts benefit? Would it be an event that our education fund could sponsor?

    Would this be a source for some “good” trees


    (sorry…a lot of questions!)
