Hi, everybody,

it’s been a wile. I know! But things have not gone very well for me after my operation! That’s why I have not been able to do any real Bonsai work in the last two months. But luckily my friend Ed helped me out and carried all my bigger trees for me into my winter shelter. And just in time, that night temperatures dropped way below zero! Thanks, EDJE Retteketetje! 🙂

In the picture below, that was shot the morning after that first real wintry night, this old Larch seems to be surrounded by only straight lines. These lines beautifully contrast and emphasize the curves and natural flow of the snow-covered trunk and branches. I liked it so much, that I made it into a greeting cart for all my dear Bonsai friend out there!

Have a nice one,

Hans van Meer.
