First Collection This Winter

At last month’s Meeting of Leinster Bonsai Club I suggested a get together to lift a few trees, John L told us he had a few boxwood to lift and if we wanted we could join him. We were told the house was built 200 years ago, the shrubs and trees planted not long after. I well believe that with the girth of some of the boxwood.  Yesterday was the day we had planned unfortunately only 3 of us could make it   #Loosers 🙂  … Only messing lads there is plenty more for next months lift.

Here’s a few of the pictures of the lift
