Partner-who-loves-tea and I often visit Gordale Nursery near Chester to pick up odd plants, garden supplies and so on. Quite often we are fortunate enough to come across a display of some sort. A couple of weekends ago it was the local Bonsai association putting on a display of their work.
I didn't have my camera with me. ("Shame, Shame!!" I hear you cry). But I did have my phone and nowadays all phones seem to have cameras in them - 0r so I am told. Having spent ten minutes playing with my phone I eventually got some sort of picture on its screen and by hitting bits of it I managed to hear a satisfying click noise which suggested the sound of a 1960s shutter.
After three of those, I contented myself with simply examining the specimens. They were most impressive and these photos by no means do them justice.
