this one is very poor quality , due to the age of it

Nice one Tim... "Nipponese Noshery"... that's a new one on me.

Thanks for seeking these out

Couldn't watch the first one, too messed up. The 2nd... it is nice to know it only takes one year to learn the art of bonsai. Unfortunately, after 10 years, I think I have a few decades more to go before I have it down pat! Cool

I love the 1960s thru 1980s feel of the videos.

Nice touch, thanks for finding these.

Thanks for sharing these, Tim. I marveled at the deep squat of the enthusiast wearing a boater's cap while tending his trees... :-)
