Winter has properly arrived

After a relatively mild November and December, winter has now arrived with sub zero night time temperatures and snow.
Some of the hardier trees are still braving the weather as nature has intended, but the more tender trees, anything that is heavily wired and most of my shohin sized trees are snug under cover in the as yet unheated greenhouses.

Not long now

This is probably the earliest bonsai show in the British Calendar.
A bit too far for me to travel, but if you are in the vicinity, make sure to have a look in.
There is a extensive list of exhibitors and traders and displays from 15 Bonsai clubs and societies.
Full details can be found on the Swindon Bonsai Club website
