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 colourful! 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 an 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 won’t be disappointed!
