Papa Pall came for a visit!

We have had a beautiful two days with Walter Pall. He came to visit us and he spent an evening and a morning in our home and garden. We were discussing trees and other friendly matters. Walter is not longer a guest in our home, he is more like a part of the family.
Well, except "too big", he spent a positive word or two about our trees, and that means very much to me. I always like to know if I'm on the "right way".
I believe that Walter felt comfortable in our home and our company, and I'm sure that he will keep on coming back every year. We are happy to have him.
Thanks Walter!

Enough for 2009!

My dear friends...this probably closes 2009 season of collecting. It is already very cold in high mountains and the winds are sometimes severe. But, it has been enough. This season has yielded many good and a few very good starter trees for bonsai. From now on, during the winter, there will be some wireing and drilling and some very basic styling of new material that has matured for the next step. And with that, cold winter months will pass. There will be no more talk of collecting 'till February when comes the time for The King between all deciduous trees...his majesty Carpinus orientalis. Even now I can hardly wait.
Than we will have more extreeme yamadori collecting trips in rocky areas where this beautiful beasts grow.

Yamadori Area

This is a new part of SandevBonsai Blog. Yamadori Area will be a subblog where all freshly collected material will be presented, furthermore, some yamadori locations together with fotos of collecting trips will be there. From now on, this kind of posts will not be on the main Blog any more. As I believe that this is not interesting to everybody and that some informations and collecting plans are "for friends only", please, if you wish to have access to this part of The Blog send me an e-mail, introduce yourself and I will let you in.
You are welcome!
