I, for one, had an incredible time at this 3 day work session !!! I really enjoyed the way it was structured around the architecture of bonsai, rather than the mechanics (such as wiring etc).

After my return to Milwaukee, I find myself looking at my own trees in a new light... I also feel somewhat emboldened in some design choices I had previously pondered, and encouraged about others I had felt at a loss for in design decisions.

The material available at The Hidden Gardens was also mind-blowing !!! (as evidenced my Walter's thorough documenting of this (and his other) event(s).

I am already looking forward to next year and I will be dragging along a couple other members of our Arbor Arts Collective...

Thanks Walter, Jennifer and especially Jeff for putting together such a unique learning and social event... Yes, let us not forget about the social aspect !!! So much fun...
