Show trees and accents

bonsai general - 25 views

for exhibit Bay Island Bonsai this year, I exhibited six trees and four accents. Two of the accents were created for previous exhibitions, while the other (smaller) two came together just before the show. Trees, on the other hand, have all been in my collection for some time.

Two of the pines are the same age, but it does not. Both the red pine forest pine and black shohin were planted in 1994, but the red pines still look young for me. It may be another five to ten years before starting to look his age.

the black pine shohin was an obvious choice for the exhibition as recently shown that in the Glass artisans who, incidentally, today launched its retrospective exhibition. More on that a review soon!

white chojubai then caught my attention because it was completely budded and begins to bloom right as the opening of the exhibition began. A new pot and some moss and was ready to go.

The hens and chicks are shown below on several BIB exhibitions. One or two years ago, a leaf from a nearby succulent fell into the pot and began to grow. I leave it for the moment.

The accent is a little later naked. I’m curious how it will look in another year.
