Six more pots that I bought from Elsebeth Bruun Ludvigsen at Europa.

Close up photos.

I love the finish on these pots.

Pots, one or two more.

Some more photos of my pot collection.

I think I need some more.

Filling up fast.

I really must curb myself from buying pots as my cabinet is fast filling up.

To some people it looks full, but I could still squeeze a few more in.

I had some bad news this morning about the workshop with Bjorn this coming Saturday. Due to circumstances beyond our control the workshop cannot now take place, but has been rearranged for Monday, so I will have to cancel my Natter night so I can still go.
Sorry for anyone thinking of coming on Monday 16th Oct.

My tree for the workshop.

Back to reallity.

A lovely day today, with wind and rain and flood warnings all over the county, this is Cumbria.

This photo, just taken, not only shows the rain but also the Autumn colours on my trees.

Natter night 9th October 2017.

Back to a bit of normality tonight after a good weekend at Bonsai Europa.

Andy P brought this Itoigawa juniper for a little maintainance.

After a bit of wiring and a clip it looks much better.

Susan G brought this Cryptomera that she will be taking up to the workshop with Bjorn on Saterday.

Ken M brought this small Cotoneaster to be put in a new pot after it fell off the bench and broke the other one.

Brian T continued wiring his juniper, again in preparation for the Bjorn workshop.

Looking forward to seeing the finished image.

Yet another busy night.

Going potty.

Quite a long time ago I picked up a virus that I just cannot get rid of, or maybe don't want to, and that is collecting pots.

I need more room.

Stone Monkey pot.

Ian Baillie pot.
