A full meeting with a number of new members and visitors attending.

Peter M led the first part of the afternoon with a discussion on what to look for when sourcing material, how to decide on the shape of your future bonsai and where to get your inspiration from. As part of the discussion he went through some species specific limitations as well as trunk taper, branch placement, trunk angle and movement. The talk was illustrated with a number of trees in various stages of development.

After the talk and afternoon tea there were plenty of trees to be worked on with numerous possible styles offered to their owners to evaluate.
