yes, I am still here, don’t worry! 🙂 It now has been just over 2 weeks since I had my lower back surgery. I am still recovering and don’t know yet if the operation has been successful, that might still take a while. But I have good hopes and strong painkillers, so who is complaining. I am not able to get any real bonsai work don, YET! But I did manage to get a nice picture of one of my small Blackthorns with its last lovely yellow autumn colour. Hope you like it? And as soon as I get some work don, I will let you all know!
