The Spring bonsai boot sale at Markham grange was certainly the busiest yet. A few professional traders but mostly hobbiests hoping to pass on their tree excesses that we all have. Trees are always priced to sell and an ideal opportunity to pick up a tree or two to play with.
Not knowing what the footfall would be like, I took a little juniper and a few feet of wire to play with. Bought the weekend before from Ken Leaver of Windybank Bonsai I had always envisaged it becoming a mame size tree.
The tree has a great little trunk but dead straight branches. These will become Jin and have a bit of shape put in them too.
Literally half an hour’s work. Still needs a pot and a bend putting in the Jin. A good, productive morning.
Next……spring cleaning my studio!!
