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. The activity has a relaxing effect on me and that's what really keeps me involved. I also have been fascinated by the English countryside and by its magnificent old trees, from my younger years when I was busy with photography. Unfortunately you do not find many old trees in the Belgium countryside due to a lack of effective nature conservation pre nineties. So 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.
