.....but somehow, we are in a happier situation than some where we have this wonderful hobby that is home-based to keep our spirits up, whereas there are some people that need outside interests to keep them occupied and stimulated and being at home is only a chore for them. Just think how lovely our trees are going to be when this pandemic is hopefully over or controlled?
I will keep you up to date each month on what to do for your trees, so keep an eye on the “Handy Hints” to help you. I will do my best to help you out with whatever problem you have and most importantly so we all don’t lose momentum or interest with our trees.
Also,each newsletter I will be adding some interesting articles from our archives during our 50 years as a club and this will be called ‘Way back when….’. It is important that you know the amazing history of our club and I can say I am very proud to have been associated with Illawarra for a large part of it, (now that is giving my age away!!!!) Unfortunately, I am going to re-type all these articles as computers were not as popular in the very early days but this is a task that will be very important for you as members to know where we as a club came from and that you belong to.
I will also try to keep to our original planned program for the rest of the year so each month there will be an article and photos of the particular subject that was planned for that month, so you lucky people the first article this month will be on my other favourite subject of Suiseki. Please read it as it will be more interesting than you ever thought possible………trust me!!!
