Nicely done, Bill.  Thanks for sharing!

Another exhibit in June?  I was hoping you might try late winter next time.

John,

Glad you enjoyed the video. The book will be much better!

Late winter is questionable because of the weather, spring is too busy with bonsai. Autumn is not good because of my annual symposia (now 30 years and going strong). Winter? Who wants to come to Rochester (even if they could get through all the snow, about 120 inches yearly) when it's cold outside. So, I'm afraid early summer is best.

Hope you can join us next time John,

Bill

I figured as much regarding the timing, though I had heard you might be rotating through the seasons.  With mostly azaleas and JBP in my collection is really hard to get away in June.  Too muich work to do.  Who knows, maybe I can work something out in order to make the next one.

I'm sure there are different schools of thought (and this thread surely shows that) but seeing some pictures and now this great video has piqued my interest and I will likely be purchasing the book. 

Thanks again for sharing, and thanks for the quick reply.

Bill,
I really liked the video and can't wait to get the book. I will definitely try and make the next one, and maybe even get to bring a tree to show.
