New feature, meet us at Rays by the stream. If you see a RED LIVE at the right hand bottom edge of the Ustream window click on it as we are streaming live video. You will get a 20 second add before you see the stream. If you see a GREY OFF AIR sign at the right hand bottom edge we are off air but you will still be able to play a previous recording (click blue circle in middle of the window to play). If written ads appear click X to remove.

Current thinking is not to show a live stream of the Natter Night (as it might not be that interesting to view) but to show streams of tree styling, and other sessions instead. There are currently some short videos on the Archive stream, they play sequentially. I will show a regular Live stream from my bonsai garden.

A trip to Wattston bonsai.

Today Mike R and myself had a run out to Wattston bonsai in Scotland to see a tree by Mr Kimura, which has been imported for a customer and will be delivered soon to him.On arrival we were greeted by Dougie who showed us round and told us not about one tree but about five trees from Mr Kimura.
This is the main tree, a Chinese Juniper
Mike standing beside it for scale.
I just thought this branch needed to be adjusted a little.
{ Only joking, how can you improve perfection }
A root over rock, also created by Mr Kimura.
Even more beautiful tree's.

This Litterati Juniper by Mr Urishibata was another one of the tree's that took my eye.
Satskies by the dozen.
Too much to take in and see.
I have to thank Dougie very much for allowing us to not only see but be so close to these tree's, I could almost feel the presence of Mr Kimura himself.
