The Garden of Crataegus Bonsai in New Video-
Blogger Oscar Jonker of Holland came to my garden during the Artisans Cup and made this video interview. We walked around the yard and talked about a handful of the trees. He spent quite a bit of time with this, and I was delighted with the product. And, to many of my students who have chastised me for being invisible on the web, at least in video format, here’s a step in the direction of visibility… A big thank you Oscar and Bonsai Empire for creating this! Enjoy-
Hi remember us ? love the video! great to see you again you look well. take care and hope to see you see you again.
How could I forget you all down there, kittycorner across the world? Hope all is well!
Very nice youtube video is your garden open to the public?
The garden is open by appointment, just contact me by email or phone, which is on the right side of the blog.
Wonderful video! Thank you Oscar!
I had to give up bonsai about 20 years ago, I had been growing & studying the art from the early 70’s through the boom years of bonsai in the UK. I’m still fascinated & keep an eye on what’s happening in the world scene. I love what you are doing & it’s great to see your trees. Keep up the good work
hi Michael, beautiful video of your bonsai garden. love it!!
thank you Bonsai Empire
Inspiring to see what you have done in so few years.
Thank you Ruth-
I know that some bonsai instructors are writing excellent blogs but they are invisible on the videos.
I know every single tree in their collection, but never even heard their voices.
You were like one of them to me, until now. 🙂
You’re really talented and warm in front of the camera and i liked to see you telling, as much as i like to read your writings.
So, hope to “see” you more. 😉
Thanks! We shall see, maybe more videos in the future then…
Awesome video! I had a question regarding an older post you had that disappeared. What to do with White Pines in the fall, did it get deleted?
I had it hidden for a while, it needs rewriting and revamping…but I’ve unhidden it for you-
Thanks! I hope you’re enjoying the colors and slowly finishing up the growing year.
Lovely video and garden. Maybe next time they can do a special on your collection of chojubai!!!
Now that would be fun…
Excellent way of giving us a tour of your garden, your work and bonsai philosophy. Many thanks to you and Bonsai empire …..hope to see more in the near future. Cheers
Appreciated Graham- it was a lot of fun, too-
You wicket monk you, mentioning interrelationship in the video again. Just finished reading your book, mentioning of inter-being brought me to tear knowing that Thay does not do too well for almost a year. To live fully in sprit of Zen, it takes knowledge and intention. I see your intention and knowledge in your trees, and deep spirit of Zen in you.
Well…I’m not a Buddhist, and writing Post-Dated took a lot of research, really. But Thay is inspirational, and one of the few I could understand. Zen is a puzzle for sure. Thanks for the kind comments.
Very nice video Michael. Thanks for taking the time to make it for the bo said community. What a pleasure to see a snapshot of your garden. I haven’t received a post from you or Jonas in months in my inbox but luckily I checked my junk mail and found lots of great posts that I had to catch up on. Thanks again
Glad you enjoyed it!
