Great fun in the last two days helping my friend Ray set up his Japanese Gardening Weekend at Bud Garden Centre in Bunratty County Clare.
There’s a small bonsai exhibition as part of the event that I’ll be judging and running demos along side.
When this idea was first floated last year and I was asked to be a part of it, I jokingly called the bonsai Exhibition Bud-Ten the Japanese term for exhibition. Ray wasn’t keen at first but peer pressure worked wonders and it stuck. 😀
We have bonsai enthusiasts from across Ireland coming for the trees and of course the social side of the weekend 🍻
If you are reading this and you’re a local, come along and say hello.
Here’s a few photos of the set up. No tree pics until It’s all set but this will give you an idea of what to expect.
