pjkatich:
Here are a few photos from last month's Joy of Bonsai 2014.

I hope you enjoy.

Cheers,
Paul

Owen Reich:
I believe I called that you would win something Paul  ;D.  What was the award for your cedar elm / your pot / your stand combo?

Judy:
Ah, cedar elm, I was about to ask what that first tree was.  I like the branch angles, my smaller Korean hornbeam grows in that fashion as well.  The last display seems to have an interesting interplay between the two trees.  Maybe I'm reading something into it, but the pine appears to be threatening/taunting the zelkova(?) The lean of the lower tree away and the aspect of the higher tree as it arches down toward it look like a situation is going on...

That you did Owen.

This cedar elm received the Presidents award.  Mike has a soft spot for elms.  Especially, odd elms like this one.

Unfortunately, the headliner did not like the idea of using the cactus we discussed as a companion.  He did not go into any detail, he just said the stone was a better choice.

Thanks for your support.

Cheers,
Paul

Hello Judy,

Thanks for the positive feedback.

In my experience, Cedar Elm is not the best candidate for bonsai.  The growth is very coarse and they typically only have one flush of growth each year.  On the plus side, they have great bark and good, dependable fall color.

You make a good point about the trees in the last photo.  It does appear that the pine is looming over the little zelkova in a menacing way.

Thanks for taking the time to comment.

Regards,
Paul
