A surprise visit from Ian Young
I had the pleasure of meeting Ian Young (Bonsai Eejit) today. Like most saturday mornings I was standing in work asking myself “Why am I standing in work?” when Ian came wondering up the steps. I’ve been talking to Ian through his blog (Bonsaieejit.com) so it was nice to finally meet him in person.
It was nice to find out a bit more about the Northern Ireland Bonsai Society and what they get up to throughout the year. I’m looking forward to getting involved when they meet again in September. At least that gives me a couple of months to get to grips with the basics so I don’t make an idiot of myself.
If you haven’t done so already, go and check out Ian’s blog for some inspiration and say hello to him. His enthusiasm for Bonsai is pretty infectious so I can understand why everyone recommended talking to Ian when I was thinking of getting started in Bonsai.
