I attended recently the NIBS 30 year anniversary exhibition in Belfast Botanic Gardens. I had every intention of carefully studying and photographing each tree in the show, but got side tracked so many times, chatting, discussing trees, browsing trees and pots etc.
Before I knew it it was time to go. I came away with a little more knowledge about Bonsai and feeling determined to know more, but mainly humbled by the progress the NIBS have made over 30 years.
