Bonsai, a relaxing hobby but requiring much attention.

I have always been attracted to the art of Bonsai since I was quite young. But it's only since a couple of years ago that I am really busy working with Bonsai. It has a relaxing effect on me and that's what really keeps me busy with it. Since my youth I have always been fascinated by the English countryside and by its magnificent old trees. when During my photography period I made many pictures of old trees. Unfortunately you don't find many old trees in the Belgium countryside anymore due to a lack of effective nature conservation.  Anyway, I think I really got interested because of the joy of keeping fully grown trees in a smaller version and not really because of the culture surrounding Bonsai.
