Looks like you all had a great day.

Trees, displays and photos look superb - great stuff from Chris and the Dragon boys. John Pitt's raft is a cracker too.

Looking forward to seeing more photos.

Some lovely trees from the Dragon boys, as usual. You do good work down there lads, keep it up! I'm just gutted that I was very nearly there this weekend, sigh. Mind you, I'd rather have been anywhere than where I actually was, which was in the A&E Dept having an infected finger cut 'n' drained. Worse still, I'll have to go back today as it's filled up again. Lovely.

Always a great welcome in the hills and valleys of Wales,

Just wanted to thank Chris for putting on a great weekend of bonsai fun, despite sore muscles trying to find a way out of the lost world, but when we did, found this fantastic pub, best steak I've had for a long time.

Dragon are fortunate to have a great bunch of guys, and gals, very passionate about all aspects of bonsai,
and the friendship and willingness to help each other that runs through the club is what bonsai is all about.
And you can see from the pictures they have some wonderful bonsai between them.

Thanks to Jerry for his family's hospitality, and the eggs , you can't get fresher, or tastier, than moving the hen to collect breakfast.

P.S. the wife loves the tall viewing stone, thanks again Chris.
