Yesterday I attended the monthly meeting of the Lanarkshire Bonsai Club at Wattston Bonsai. For the second month in a row we have had new members joining our number, which is good news for the future of the club, but it does mean that meetings can get a little crowded at peak times and space to work on a tree can be very limited. The trees selected for study this month were azaleas and yews and the theme was led and developed by our host Dougie Smith. Dougie has recently returned from a buying trip to Japan and he was eager to pass on new techniques he had learned on his journey. Here are a few pictures from the day.
Dougie in full flow.

This is a nice medium sized yew that was used for demonstration purposes
I was very impressed with this common juniper which is a recent addition to Dougie’s sales benches
