The moment I realised Bonsai was what I wanted

This photo is a record of the most significant moment in my Bonsai journey. The year is 1991 and it’s the World Convention in Birmingham, England. THIS was the first time I saw actual real Bonsai in a proper location, displayed well. At the time my club did not want to drive the 80 miles or spend the princely sum of a £12 entrance. Terry and I realised that this was a great opportunity and ignored the objections from my club members and journeyed south. We were not disappointed, quite simply our minds were BLOWN! The size of the trees on display, the quality of display and how busy the show was. Lesson learned, follow your own path, do what is best for your own development and your older peers do NOT always know what’s best! And thank you Terry Foster for your friendship all these years.

  2. We went to the National Convention in ‘92, from Colchester, where our club was based. I only know this as an exact event date because I came across a set of photos while having a tidy-up a couple of weeks ago. As you say, for people just starting out, it was a real experience.
