bonsai tree care





More than 14 annual exhibition of BIB

bonsai general - 18 views



is hard not to get nostalgic when I look at photos Bay Island Bonsai Exhibition. I have seen several of the trees develop over many years and you can see how far they have come. It’s fun to see the variety between old deciduous and evergreen trees, large and small trees and saplings. And it’s fun for me to think about the people who have brought the trees to exhibit and the work they have poured into their bonsai over the years. I am aware that some trees are much more developed than others and I am optimistic that trees less developed continue to improve.

I remain surprised by the level of entertainment derived from the appreciation of my favorites. The red pine bunjin below is a large study of balance and style. Gooseberry age and transmits natural development. I think the semi-cascade of white pine to be one of the most beautiful trees in the exhibition and hope to see more trees and in the future. The great beech suggests grandeur and perhaps a nearby forest. The Princess khaki tells me fall.

is also difficult for me not to think of the coming exhibition. A total of 12 months away, the 15th annual exhibition of BIB, “Made in the USA,” will not have imported trees. I have selected some candidates for the exhibition, and will develop this year with the aim of showing in 2014. But that can wait until next year -. Here are some favorites of the exhibition of 2013
