The Wedding

Congratulations to Phil and Suse for what was a fantastic day out for all the guests sharing in their big day. Sun was shining, drink was flowing and the craic was mighty 🙂

Here is the day in photos for those who know them and want a closer look.

Well done Mark the Best Man, I think we worked well as a team on the day in keeping Phil right 😉 As a kind gesture, at the end of the day we swapped a cuff link, a nice moment.

And a big thanks to Suse and Phil making me walk into the top table to the the song, ‘Here Come The Girls’!! 😛

Blogging From the Bog

I did a live post yesterday from the bog while we were collecting Scot’s Pine. It was a rare sunny day and as usual turned out to be one of the highlights of the bonsai year. Good company good craic, and good results.

Funny story, guess who forgot to put the memory card in the camera? Yep me! Luckily Stephen had his camera with him and I copied his card Phew! This means that I was actually in a few photos and there is evidence that I do actually do a little work.

Highlight of the day for me was watching Phil Fingers stepping into a hole and sinking into freezing water up to the knee. The usual abuse was given only for me to find a different hole a few minutes later. 😀

We cut back a few larger trees to collect at some point in the future. The land owner says that they’ll still be there for a while and we are the only people who he trusts to collect on the site. Therefore we can go longer term with a few of them.

We collected a few smaller ones and finished early enough to get everything potted up in the one day.
