Highlights of annual exhibition BIB 16

bonsai general - 24 views



As it does every year, annual exhibition Bay Island Bonsai seemed to end just as it was the beginning. It was a blast, and as always wish I had more time to enjoy the trees. poring over the pictures is the best alternative. Some photos make it easy to appreciate the strengths of a tree. Other photos bring key errors to the fore. I think there is something of each in the pictures of the trees and the screens below.

Several people asked if I had a favorite tree in the exhibition this year. I did not know, but a tree that came to mind is an old grape vine. I like it because it does a great job conveying his age.

with that Monterey pine, which is the last will of large trees in an exhibition BIB for time as next year’s event will focus on small and medium enterprises bonsai.

When I first heard the idea, I thought it sounded fun and a great opportunity to small and medium trees attention they deserve. On further reflection, the amount of work involved became apparent. 20-40 additional trees – easy to lift thankfully – plus many more pots, stands and small accents will be needed. I hope to work on a lot of screens practice in the next year, in preparation for the event.
