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 a talk with Xenie, will enjoying a cup of Coffey.
