I have not added anything here for a long time.
Since I last wrote, I have bought a number of trees as well as netsuke and snuff bottles.
Then Last week I had the hip replacement that I have waited for since July last year.
I am getting better by the day.
I had a good year with talks last year, I was able to afford a digital projector screen and stand from the fees which will do good work over the next few years.
I did have to cancell some this year as I did not know when I would be having the surgery.
I am going to miss my trees wake up this spring and I will be unable to get all those repotted that I wanted to do.
I missed for the first time a meeting of the Blackmore Vale Bonsai Group. We formed in 2009 and until last week I had not missed one. I did get to the meeting this week though, which was good.
I am going to miss the Swindon Show this year, but I will get to the aucton of trees that were Manuel's.
