Looking back….we can tell a tree’s story…..admire an image…..capture a moment…..remember a special event…..be inspired – to create a memory for tomorrow.
I hope you enjoy this regular peep into some of John’s bonsai history.
Memory Lane – Junipers Bonsai Class – September 2009
Students come together for a class devoted to the popular Juniper species. An excellent opportunity for the participants to see different varieties, different styles, and to gain a valuable insight into what this very adaptable tree really has to offer.
Classes like this one also give the student useful information on how to maintain the tree and what pruning needs to be carried out at different stages so that the tree can progress from one stage to the next.
See if you can identify the wrap-around/tanuki bonsai, a Juniper Parsonii, a Blue Carpet Juniper, three Squamata Meyerii, two Juniper Rigida, a Kifu Juniper from Japan, a raft planting, and a group planting made up of individual bonsai from Japan and China.
Our Juniper bonsai classes continue to be very popular and I am pleased to say that most of the students and trees featured are still regular visitors.
