Site of interest-Olivier Barreau

As I'm away in France, I thought a link to something regional might be of interest-that of Olivier Barreau.
I hope to get the opportunity to meet this talented young man in the near future!

He is defiantly skilled in the training of Buxus- a species I'm now coming to appreciate.

New members are always welcome, just come along to one of our monthly meetings at the RAFA club. You can even 'try us out' for a few months before you decide on joining as an official member. The meetings are informal (there's a bar!) and the club members are (mostly) friendly, approachable and happy to pass on guidance and information to anybody interested in bonsai- whatever your level of experience.
