hello all

i'm john from the UK, i've been into bonsai for about ten years and am a member of the south yorkshire bonsai club:)

we have members that have been bonsai-ing for thirty or more years, some have been to japan to learn more (i'm glad they did as i'm not too good:eek: )

i found that after a while of being a bonsai nut that i was eying up trees in peoples front gardens whilst out and about in my jalopy, occasionally, i would get people blowing their horns at me while i was deciding how to style the pine in a garden and the lights had gone green:rolleyes:

i have a few half nice trees and nearly a garden full of not so nice trees that i just can't bring myself to throw away:confused:

anyhow, i'll stop jabbering on now before i put everyone to sleep with boredom:D :D

regards, john:)

Eyup John,

Another yorkshireman here, grew up in Barnsley, moved to the US in 1999. Have you been over to John Hanby's place, you are lucky to have a nice nursery near you, the nearest one for me is 3.5 hours drive.

Cheers
Ian
