What we've been up to

Post  Craig Cowing on Tue May 10, 2011 3:20 am

Anita and I have been absent from the IBC for a couple of years. Long story made short, my full-time position as a pastor in NY state was cut back to half time, and I searched for a new position. That pretty much occupied most of my waking hours for a full six months. I'm now pastor of South Congregational Church in Newport NH. Anita is currently working in Boston several days a week. A long commute, but she loves the work.

Bonsai activity has been good this year. We didn't do much last year because we were basically getting everything set up last spring, and it was a major effort to get the trees here. We moved in February 2010 so we had to winter the trees over in my brother's backyard in CT. We made several trips in the spring to get them up here.

Everything wintered over really well. The heavy snow helped to insulate and protect everything.

This Saturday we're teaching a beginner's class at the Library Arts Center in Newport. We'll have five people taking the class. The previous day 21 of our trees will be on display at the Arts Center. I'm quite pleased they were interested in doing that. We'll be doing a tour of the trees at 5 PM at the Arts Center.

We've had some good opportunities for collecting. Lots of hemlock. This hemlock heaven.

Hi Craig... It is great to hear from you, and I hope we'll hear more of your bonsai & viewing stones.
