Bonsai in China

L1016779

Returning to China. From Dec. 7 to 11, 2017, China Penjing Artists Association will be holding “China National Exhibition for Penjing Artists” in Rugao city, Jiangsu Province, China. I will participate with a bonsai demonstration, and I am actually quite exhited to
be back.

It is remarkable what happens in China these years at the Penjing/Bonsai scene, and I am proud to be part of it. A report will, of course, be published later when I am back.

Bonsai summer time

It´s summer time, and the Danish summer behaves as it sometimes does. It rains. It rains. And it rains.

Not much sun lately, but temperatures are alright. It might not be good for humans who wants to enjoy holidays by relaxing in the garden with the sun shining, enjoying the bonsai, eating diner outside – but is surely good weather for the plants. Days shifting between a little sun and then rain to nurse the foliage. Trees are clearly growing good, and benefits from this kind of weather. And there is a special mood in a garden after a night with summer rain that one can enjoy. Waiting for sun though. 😉

Workshop at Nordic Bonsai

A nice day with nice people at Nordic Bonsai today. Students progressed very nicely with good material, and made some future trees. Especially one brave student made the “Albek-cut” and formed the basics of a big Yew, making a step forward to a Shohin-bonsai in future. Thanks for being there, to both my Danish friends and friendly guests from Sweden 🙂

Here a few snapshots taken in between teaching.
