MY WORSHOP AND DEMO WEEKEND FOR THE NORSK BONSAISELSKAP.

Many mounts ago, my new bonsai friend ‘Rune Kyrdalen’ invited me over to Norway to do a workshop and demo weekend for his club “THE NORSK BONSAISELKAP”. So finally last Friday, early in the morning, I boarded the SAS plain to fly to yet a other country I had never been to before, to meet up with new bonsai friends to do some serious bonsai, with a smile!

Rune, his lovely wife “Anne” keeps and runs sled dogs. This is “Ringo” one of her beautiful wolf like dogs, that I photographed while enjoying some morning sun.

 

Saturday: the demo day.

Me next to the home made sign that stood at the bottom of the road leading up to the wonderful house were this bonsai weekend was held. If you look closely you can see that even the little kids joined in making it!

    Having fun Hans. Looks like some good work.

    What type of tree was that big deciduous one the guy is carrying?

  2. H Robi. I’m the one carrying the big decidious tree. It’s a Ligustrum ovalifolium. It came from a hedge that was planted in 1939 in England! It was collected in 2003 by Graham Potter.These trees are not used in gardens in Norway except in the warmest parts in the south west so it will need some winter protection in my area.
