Best wishes


Today Tomaž H. , Matej, Bojan, Janez O. and I haded to Italy to the Barbazza bonsai center.
Man, this was a cold day. It was the first time that I bought bonsai at -6°C. And they had as much snow as we had - which is unusual for that region.
Anyway, we had a very good time and I hope to repeat it soon.

Second snow

We got another deloverry of snow this weekend.

Here some more photos:

Repotted mini forsythia

In Opatia, Croatia I finally found a fitting pot (Walsall ceramics) for my mini forsythia.

Autumn in full flow

The first thing I noticed when I came back from Croatia, was how much the color of my bonsai changed.

Exhibition in Croatia

This weekend, the 24. and 25. October, our delegation (my family included) visited the South naber country, Croatia for the exhibition.
After two years since I was there the last time they made quite some progression on the exhibition quallity. They even brought in a world renown bonsai artist Mauro Stemberger, the president of the Italian UBI.
It was a nice weekend with old and new friends.

The place of the happening.
