If this one doesn't make sense you should probably read the other comments.

Very nice array of trees at that show.  Wow.  Definately a show to see.

Thanks for the time and effort to post all those pictures.  They are a joy to look at.

Wayne,

Lots of time and effort to take, format, and upload pictures.  Thanks a ton!

From the looks of it there are a lot of trees crammed into the display.  Do you get that sense in person?  Also, some of the cloth backdrops are pretty wrinkled and distracting, something I noticed at our own last club show. 

So, which ones are yours?  :)

Wow, those are some really great trees!  Saw some great pines and hinokis in there, among a few others (some really nice deciduous as well).  Thanks for taking the time to post.

Wayne,

What can you tell us about this one:



If I remember the forest next to it correctly, this one must have been HUGE!  I recognize a few others from the Nashville club.  Looks like it was a good show.

Wayne,

Thank you for taking the time and trouble to document the displays so thoroughly. Thanks too for making the Upstate SC Study Group part of the Expo weekend; I thought your display presented very well. I'm sorry we didn't get a chance to talk, but the last week has been more or less a blur. We'll keep in touch.

Thanks again,

AJ

Florida's beating LSU 3 - 0.

I know that last tree (0060)! :)

The show just gets better and better. Thanks for taking the time to post all the photos, and giving me the heads-up about this forum!

Wayne,
Thanks again for the hard work to post all these great shots! I think one of my favorites was this shohin display:



Do you have a wider shot of it? Unless I miss my mark, both the accent plant in lower right and the tree on the left are part of this well-done formal shohin display. Great trees and display, although I may have used a stone in the lower left of the stand were it mine. Easily said, since I don't have trees like these yet!

I'm also glad to see that the ponderosa on the first page (tree #42) seems to be doing better.  I believe that tree was posted here or on another forum as having issues a couple of months ago.
