Great idea and what fun! Girlfriend has been bugging me to decorate a bonsai, looks like a perfect oppotunity. :D

That's awesome Barry!! :)
Regards, Mitchell.

Greetings,
The young ladies at my work have asked for a tree to decorate for work lunch, 23rd December. I will take a photo and post. They were very disappointed that I would only bring a tree into the air conditioning for two days. They all voted that it should in the tea room for December.
I hope the competition will not close too early. I am always disappointed that the Christmas lights are turned off on the 26th, there are 12 days more of Christmas.
Happy bonsai,
Bruce
