I agree Lee, I re-read the thread and veiwed all the video footage and it seems that this year, once again, has produced some top notch tree for now and the future. We are so lucky in this country to have someone as dedicated as Tony organise this Burr-nansa of Bonsai for hobbiest and hardcore alike. Thank you Tony, and your family and loyal group of helpers, for such a wonderful event.

BURRS photo's finally off my camera. It seems like so long ago.............

As a first timer at BURRS I wasn't sure what to expect, despite trying to get some inside info from Fiona a few days before the event. Shocked

I learned more at BURRS in 2 days than I have from reading any book on Bonsai. The enthusiasm and knowledge of those attending was incredible. The quality of material worked on was top class and for me really highlighted the importance of getting good stock to work with.

I'd recommend the event to anyone serious about bonsai. I now just have to get the right material to go again

Very Happy





Morea wiring


Jerry hard at work on a wee one


Notice that Andy, Lee and Simon are blissfully unaware of the bonsai genius dancing round Andy's Pine. Mario moved so much I couldn't get him in focus !


Steve (Harleyrider), clearly breaking the 'only 1 tree in the room at one time' rule. I count 4 on the table in front of him, and he's propping up that table with a bloody huge lump of privet on the floor ! They say that bonsai rules are there to be broken - Steve has taken this literally, here is the evidence


Pavel in a blur


Morea, Me and Weik. It was truly great to meet you Morea - I hope we can meet again soon. I now have to get one of your pots for my collection ! Weik - it was great to meet you too, you're a cool guy!


Pavel and me. Pavel - it was a great experience for me to see you work on the trees. I was amazed at the speed you work and how you can see an image in a tree so well. Your posts on IBC are always of the highest quality and always inspirational. It was a pleasure to meet you and your son and Mirek.


Mario and me. Mario - you are one of the coolest guys on the planet. Amazing talent and so down to earth. Your talk through some of your trees progressions was fantastic.


Peter Landerloos in Tony's garden beside the big Hawthorn.
Peter - You made me laugh so much over the weekend, I really hope we can meet again soon.



BURRS was about friendship, meeting fellow enthusiasts, top class material, world class artists, bucketloads of knowledge and advice, good food and a few drams of whisky to wash it all down.

Thanks again to Terry Foster - I probably learned more from you than I did from anyone else. Your patience with me while you were teaching me to wire my Pine deserves a medal !

Tony - Thanks for a great event and the gift from your very inspirational garden (you really need to update your website Razz )

Stone Monkey does have withdrawal symptoms, but for me the symptoms are all added up to "Daydreamer's Great Expectation"
Thank you for sharing all this friendly atmosphere. You are all amazing!

Burrs 2010 was a great event and next year is already in the planning the date is November 4/5/6 2011. I have had enquiries from Cyprus, the USA and Denmark already for next year.

I have had a debrief with a few participants and NEW items that will be introduced next year include: A bonsai/material auction on Saturday evening. Free Limited edition Shirts for all participants "I survived Bonsai@Burrs 2011" (with appropriate cartoon) and an even more gourmet experience on Saturday night.

We have 12 people registered already... So if you want to come make sure you get your place booked soon by emailing carolyn@tickle.co.uk

Hi All,

I know I've not been present much on the IBC of late (life has a nasty habit of getting in the way), but I wanted to take the opportunity here to add my thoughts on Burrs 2010.

As always, Tony and Carolyn have done a top notch job of bringing together like minded people from many different places to share in this fantastic event. The amount of work involved must be enormous - not least the feeding on many hungry mouths! - and without that passion and commitment none of us would have a Burrs to attend at all.

I had the great pleasure of having Mario help me out and do a first styling on my cork oak (pictures may follow when I have finished wiring and my garden defrosts!). This tree has a special value to me as it was a present from my long-suffering wife (I also know it was special to it's previous owner who is keen to hear of it's progess), and that value has now been augmented as it embodies the memories of another fantastic Burrs weekend and the work of Mario. As I am still quite new to bonsai, I felt that Mario was extremely patient with me as I tried to prep my tree and he obviously has a great passion to teach others. I found him to be absolutely inspirational and I hope we will meet again at some point in the future.

Having seen much of Pavels here on the IBC, it was a delight to see him work in real life both in the Saturday night demo and throughout the weekend - masterful work!

It was also great to see many familiar faces (including Terry Foster, who's work desrves a wider audience!) and to meet many new ones - after the organisation, it's the people that make the Burrs event what it is for me and that is very special. I'm also indebted to Simon - without his van, I would never have got my trees to Burrs, nor would I have suffered the worst hangover I've had in 10 years ... but it was well worth it!

Well done and huge thanks to everyone for another Burr-illiant bonsai weekend!

Cheers

Matt
