    Hi old friends!! im back!

    Hi everyone!!! i used to be pretty active here a while ago but then i got out of the hobby for a while. well like any other hobby, you cant get out for good, so im back already seems like the forum is more active then before!!

    i recently started getting re-interested in the hobby when one of my friends mom (who is a hort teacher) asked me to participate in a workshop with Nature's Way because she had an extra space. The workshop was for a school, so the stock they brought was pretty pathetic. I would post pictures of the tree i styles, but im embarrassed to even post it! lol! but in 10-15 years, it will look awesome!

    but im glad i got interested in the hobby again! but im still a broke teenager :P

    Welcome back, I did the Hornbean Forest Workshop the Saturday before the school was going to be there Monday. What did you all work with?

    Yes was pretty good There was 9 or 10 of us doing the Workshop. I was kinda disappointed thou because Jim was doing the Workshop and had to step out a couple times because of getting some High dollars tree's in for the Syposium this past weekend. I had a lot on my mind that day and Bonsai was the last thing on it. So my Day there wasn't really the best which really upsets me that I actually let other stupid stuff keep interfearing with my escape. Here's the pictures of the Forest 1st is day brought home and the 2nd picture was just taken Saturday.

    I'm getting married for the 2nd time to my wife on 12th, this is going to be the Formal wedding was waiting for my bro to come in from TX but now he's not going to be able to make it in July so we rescheduled it for the 12th. I keep giving her a hard time about I done married you once you think I'm going to do it again lol. She knows thank God that I'm only teasing her and giving her a hard time. I have a Wedding to DJ now this Saturday so I'm not going to be able to make DC until Sunday and hopefully I can manage to squeeze that in. I really hate to miss it again this yr. Jes
