Just received a notification that the blog is one year old today! It’s been useful in a number of ways:
1) Its been great to receive advice from other enthusiasts regarding styling bonsai, pests, disease etc…
2) I’ve appreciated reblogging very informative posts by more experienced artists and use these as a reference tool for maintaining/improving my bonsai material.
3) I’ve used it to look back and compare my material at different stages and also to know when exactly I wired/defoliated/repotted a tree. This informs my future plans for the material.
I haven’t posted as much as I’d like during term time but when I’m not working it’s been very enjoyable finding a bit of daily time to work on bonsai (when possible). Thanks to everyone for reading/commenting/liking/reblogging. It’s great to be a part of this small online community!
