On the 29th Of April W-B-S 2012 held it’s Last Sunday of the Month Workshop at the One and Only Gordales Garden Center Britain's Best Garden Retailer, Independent Retail Outlet of the Year and Garden Centre of the Year!here in the Wirral and what a day it was as the Rain seem to stay on forever but it did NOT stop some of the Bonsai Diehards from attending the workshop to work on their own trees along with assisting any members of the public with questions and answers to any of the problems they had with their own or bought Bonsai Trees
On call were Dave,Tom,Bill T,Andy,Doug,Bill G,Sean,Brian and Ian along with the Bonsai Trees to be worked on we had a Large Olive Tree,Twin Large, Deshojo Maple,Two Potentilla,Korean Hornbeam,Pieris Forest Flame,Yew ,Spruce and Two Privets’
It was a quiet day but we did have our regular couple who brought in images of their Bonsai Tree to seek advice on so Doug, Andy, Ian, were available to assist them another couple brought a Chinese Elm to the workshop table and Ian worked on the Elm for them and they both were grateful and pleased with the result Dave, Sean, Bill T, Bill G and Tom help many members of the public with any question and some who just stop to say Hello and a chat
Later in the afternoon we had a nice visit from Former Newsletter Editor of the Japan Society North West, A sweet charming young Lady Yuko Howes, who recorded some footage for her new blog, Japan Outpost (www.japanoutpost.org.uk). In this blog, she reports various Japanese culture-related activities by British people in and around Greater Manchester.
It was a pleasant day and we all enjoyed each other’s company with Sean stealing the limelight with HIS TRUE STORY of an Escaped Stag explaining that on Friday 27thApril at 07:am Sean and Paddy had the First sighting then later in the afternoon at 3:30 pm another sighting with Paddy in pursuit at a Place in Huyton (The exact location is being withheld to prevent poachers) Police, Motorway Police and Knowsley Safari Park Rangers where monitoring the situation as the animal may have escaped from the park!!!!!!!
But a Spokesperson has reported that “PADDY has refused to talk or say anything”
Once again we all like to Thank Mr and Mrs Nicholson and all the Staff and the Award Winning Garden Centre for supporting W-B-S Sunday Workshop

Take care look after each other and all your Bonsai Trees
Interesting approach to tree styling
Ian's eye sight isn't what it used to be......... a bit more to the right, Ian
A puzzled look.......what do you do with these??
An unusual position,.... for the tree and Ian!
A good array of trees (and an odd array of people)
