Giareda 2015 and workshop with Enrico Savini

What can be better than that....three friends spend three great days in Italy with other bonsai enthusiasts. On the first day we had a workshop with Enrico Savini and the learning process that never ends goes on.

Spruce yamdori progress 2010-2015

This giant Spruce was collected in 2010 and since than it developed at a slow but steady pace. I'm happy with the current image of the tree and I think that it is a good foundation for the final development of all necessary details to reach the maturity level which is necessary to exhibit a tree.
