As I am not able to do much about anything bonsai this week, owing to being in the uneven and weird world of having one good eye and one that is frankly rubbish, I thought I would share the other part of bonsai that I love.
And this is watching someone else create a beautiful bonsai.
This video is from Graham W Potter and I must have watched him work so many times. To say he has been a constant source of inspiration would be an understatement!
While we are looking at an expert, I have remembered something I want to do next week, once the restriction on bending over is lifted. My neighbour has a sapling oak tree that is growing up against a wall in the front garden, and when I heard that she would be removing it and would likely kill it, I volunteered to rescue it. It has been there some years now, kept small by all the constant pruning and from what I can see, has developed a good trunk.
I will have my camera handy and will document the rescue somehow…
