A regular update on the life and times of John Hanby’s Newstead Bonsai Centre……..
Topical Times – Changing seasons in the bonsai garden
It really is that time of year…….for some this is the best time with the leaves showing that magnificent spectrum of colour before they eventually fall…….and then unfortunately it’s that long period of having to sweep and clear daily to keep the place tidy.
I suppose we should enjoy it while it lasts because soon the branches will be bare, days will be shorter, and winter will be upon us. But don’t despair because it won’t be long before we start looking forward to the joys of spring, repotting and emerging shoots.
That’s one of the problems of doing bonsai, always looking forward……it’s like you’re wishing your life away as if it wasn’t going fast enough anyway!
