It generally doesn’t happen that often, but every now and again, it pays to step back and smell the roses. I have found that it does wonders for the private parts of life and it also allows you to see everyday things differently. Yes dear readers, I took a holiday. I won’t overshare too much with you but these are the holiday snaps of a bonsai professional…a very sad one.
|Incredible textured wood, weathered from hundreds of years exposed to the elements…|
|No real reason for it to grow like that. It just got it’s groove on at an early age|
|A weird textured landscape. Like a Chinese “suiseki”, as natural as Cheez Whiz|
|Big Bad Ass Pine, dominating the skyline|
|A rare sighting.|
|So that’s what windswept branches look like…|
|A perfect Shima-gata suiseki…
The autumn season kicks off in earnest from err…tomorrow. It is going to be non stop until Christmas with trips to Belfast, Willowbog, the US (twice), Poland, Japan and Cornwall all to squeeze in around some stupid exhibition I decided to do..(.http://naturalflux.co.uk/ if you didn’t know).
Expect some updates along the way…
