It was back to Portsunlight Garden Centre here in the Wirral were we always receive a warm and Friendly welcome Being Mother Sunday the garden centre was busy in other areas.
On show we had a variety of Trees such as Flowering Cherry, Korean Hornbeam, Pryacantha, Chinese Elm, Larch, Potentilla, Escallonia, Contoneaster a few more plus a couple of Accent Plants belonging to Our Leader for the day Andy H.assisted by Doug M and Tom and these were the trio who brought their Bonsai Trees and Tools to work on and await to assists any member of the Public who needed help and guidance with their own Bonsai Tree or Trees as was the case with a Wonderful Lovely Lady named Ann along with her Husband Steve who live in Cheshire. Ann had brought in her Oak Tree for assistance
and Andy took centre stage and after little time consulting with Ann, Andy got in action with both Steve and Ann looking on seemly approving and very happy with the result. During after morning and afternoon Doug was chatting with Steve and it was interesting to hear about Steve's other passion a Longbow and involved with Reenactments and if your interested in this pastime and I believe there is a Society called
The Holly Holy Day Society “The Battle Of Nantwich”– English Civil War
