Wednesday Night's meeting was one that I was looking forward to and for me I was not disappointed with Ian.W. and Andy H.taking to the floor and stage to explain about Leaf Pruning on Maples and on some Deciduous Tree such as Beech and Hawthorns
Before that Chairman Iain W mentioned that "Wee Mary" our ever present Young Lady was not in the best of Health and ask Geoff to express the societies best wishes for a speedy recovery
Also Sad News that the Bonsai World has lost one of the Grand Masters of Bonsai. M.r Daizo Iwasaki who passed away On Early May 2011. He spent his life sharing his Love and Passion of Bonsai with the entire Bonsai Community. Takasago-an Bonsai Garden :and no words that could I say would ever match what has already been written about him and images of his work and garden plus The Great Man himself can be seen Here
The Leaf Pruning Session was very well attended with Ian getting to grips with the why's and wherefore of leaf pruning Maples and some Deciduous Trees then Andy doing what he does best getting stuck in with the Scissors and showing how to carry out this task on his Maple plus answering questions from the ever so inquisitive members
An Excellent night was had by all.
