Title: Bonsai Silhouette Show 2016
Post by: bwaynef on December 05, 2016, 02:17 PM
I was lucky enough to get to go to this great show in Kannapolis, NC.  I only saw @Owen Reich 's demo on Texas Ashe Juniper, but there were 2 or 3 others.  (I saw part of the presentation, but none of the demo of @William N. Valavanis working on Hinoki (I think).)

The vendor area was expanded, and packed with lots of good deals.  I'd decided before I left not to spend any money and focus on what I already had.  (You can guess how that went.)

Here are some pics from the demo I saw and the rest of the show.

This was a deceptively difficult place to take photos.

Apparently I didn't edit the ones from the demo.  It was just a tree that got cut back and bent up a little bit.  You get the idea.


Just kidding.  I'll edit them and get those posted as well.

Thanks for taking the time to upload these pics. I spent the weekend helping friends at their Christmas Tree Farm. I looked at thousands of beautiful trees but those you posted are much more to my liking.
