Great day at the Bonsai Centre

Been doing my introduction to bonsai course today.

Arrrgggggggg! I hope it grows back, which the bonsai gurus assure me that it will.

I also acquired a new Serissa tree to accompany the Chinese Elm I got for Xmas. Both have been repotted and ready to flourish in spring. 20130120-190910.jpg20130120-190919.jpg

Part two of the course scheduled and already booked. I can’t wait.
