Esprit Bonsai – Soldanella

Another great article from my plant swapping buddy Xavier in Esprit Bonsai issue 82. And even better, my Soldanella in a Magic Ceramics pot made an appearance.



A nice article on the Pacific Bonsai Museum too, hoping to visit myself next year at some point.


Esprit Bonsai #78


Another pleasant surprise this week was Esprit Bonsai Magazine #78 hitting the doormat. My pick of this issue would be the article on exhibiting Shohin, a great read as usual. Esprit Bonsai will be at Bonsai Europa this weekend, so you can buy a copy for yourself and see what you think.


Esprit Bonsai

I must admit, I’m loving the English language version of Esprit Bonsai. I received another batch this week and have really enjoyed the wide range of articles they produce all done with a different slant than their competitors.




Some great articles looking at trees in nature.DSC_0003


Esprit Bonsai -English

Thought I’d try out the new English version of the French magazine Esprit Bonsai. I must admit I’m pleased with the issue, especially as it even covers accents 🙂



Mr Warren’s New Book

Peter Warren’s new book has hit the shelves of book stores, well, probably more accessible via Amazon’s virtual book store, but you get my meaning.

Mr Snart of Willowbog fame has displayed his copy nicely in a Tokonoma. Did he write any words of wisdom on the inside cover Peter? 😉
