Steve Tolley at the Dragons den today

It was again the chance for club members to work with Steve. He has to be one of the best bonsai artists about today, his knowledge and ability is second to non and this combined with the down to earth way that he explains things means you learn and understand so well.
Steve talked about all the trees to be worked on and then it was time to get the tools out.

A very enjoyable day with Steve and the Dragon clan.
A few pictures I took of the day of members working on their trees and just enjoying the day.

Be fair Jackie, it's not that bad. Evil or Very Mad having your picture taken, that is. Twisted Evil
