last Saturday I drove up to Nieuwerkerk aan den IJssel (close to Rotterdam) to visit my good Bonsai friend Teunis Jan Klein at his Bonsai studio “Deshima” , for a talk over some coffee and also to check out my Taxus demo tree that was at his place! The two amazing Acer’s that welcomed me in his self build Bonsai studio were overwhelmingly happy and colorful! They gave a tunning impression that can only be admired! Great place, some great trees and a great artist and teacher, well don my friend! Here are some pictures to give you a impression of what I saw that day, I hope you enjoy it as much as I did?! And if you have the change, go visit him in his Studio, you wound be disappointed!
