4am Sunday morning we were on the road in the torrential rain heading for Enfield, north London. Not my preferred option for a Sunday morning, especially after a hectic week of travelling. A busy day in prospect we collected my friend (also Graham) and reluctantly made our way through the floods in the cold and dark.

The Enfield Bonsai group have been holding an autumn show for a while now and this year we were asked to get involved. So a little sponsorship, a tokonoma display, demo’ and trade space ensured a busy day. Because I was working, Rammon was consigned to our trade pitch for the day and the two Graham’s got up on stage to do a little work. My mentor, Kevin Willson appeared and sat in the front row. No pressure there then 😉

Despite the weather a great turnout ensued. I think this was an excellent little show, very well supported and some very special and well presented bonsai trees. The club here have done exceptionally well to put together an excellent event. Here’s looking forward to next year…..
