Today Ayr Bonsai Club on the west coast of Scotland played host to one of the best known faces in the bonsai world, Tony Tickle.
Tony provided a very informative talk on the development of 3 hawthorn trees from his collection and later in the afternoon carried out a critique on some of the members trees.
I had never seen Tony in action before, so this was an opportunity not to be missed. His delivery is friendly, informal and entertaining and includes an excellent photographic history of his trees. The critic part of the event was helpful, informed and mindful to the sensitivities of the owners.
All in all, a very entertaining afternoon
Here are the three stunning trees that Tony brought along to illustrate his talk
