Green Mountain Bonsai Society 6/22
« on: June 05, 2014, 06:56 AM »
On June 22, the GMBS will hold it's annual members show. This year our guest artist is BSG's own Owen Reich. The club is looking forward to meeting Owen and seeing his take on our trees. Anyone interested in joining us on that Sunday is welcome. The day is free to all and we break for a barbecue lunch, by contribution. So, anyone in driving distance to Jericho Vermont enjoy yourself and join us...if you need more info our details please feel free to contact me. Oh, did I mention we have a sale table were members bring trees. This year one of our members is moving to Florida, his northern trees will have to go, so there should be some nice trees available for sale.
Hope to see someone from this board at the show.
Jay

Sunday is fast approaching... Owen is do to land Saturday evening. We are getting ready... And.... The weather looks lovely. I realize northern Vermont is a trip for many... And perhaps out of the question for others. But Vermont in late spring early summer is wonderful. If you decide to come, I'll look for you, just let me know.
If not, enjoy your trees. I'll enjoy the weekend.

Great group and perfect weather.  Happy to see David Knittle is a "local" as well.

What, no pictures, wasn't it a workshop?

Sorry I do not have pictures... will see if someone else does.
It wasn't a work shop. In the morning, Owen reviewed members trees. These were threes that members were seeking advise on. Most were in process but a few were more advanced. His insights were well thought out and very helpful.
After a wonderful lunch Owen started a nursery stock tree on its way to being a bonsai.

I try and see if there are picks that I can get...
