Kaikou Bonsai Study Group Exhibit at NE Bonsai
« on: September 19, 2014, 02:11 PM »
I meant to post this earlier, but our newly formed group will be hosting the fall show at NE Bonsai tomorrow from 10-3. There will be a critique by John Romano at 11 and 1. All are welcome and sorry again for the late notice.

Good luck Tom.

Are you starting to get some color in your deciduous trees?

Take some photos and post a few please.

Regards,
Paul

The show went great today and I think the displays were out together pretty nicely for our first show. Big thanks to John for all his help putting this together. Next year will be even better!

First picture is of my display with Michael Woods' (exitsanity) premna. The premna is a much nicer tree than my phone picture shows but I hope to get better pictures up soon. Second picture was for the best tree in the show, a fabulous Brazilian rain tree.

What's the tree in the previous post and on the pedestal?

I liked the display and the best-in-show Brazilian Rain Tree.  Congrats on a successful show!

VEry nice raintree.  Although they seem to grow fast, they seem slow to bulk up, in a pot at least. 
Any more photos you can share?

The tree on the stand is my green island ficus. It's a bit immature for display but it's all I has to participate.

I'm working on more photos, the sun made it tricky for one side of the show. The rain tree has been grown from a cutting over a twenty year period.

Your ficus looks good Tom.

Thanks for sharing the photos.

I look forward to seeing a few more.

Cheers,
Paul

Thanks Paul, it certainly needs a few more years of refining and filling in. I still haven't got around to getting the photos from my Nikon edited so here are some not so great pictures from my phone to whet your appetite.  A shohin display from John with a white pine, trident maple, and mini hosta is the first picture. Followed by a rather large ginkgo forest and a hinoki.

Thanks for the link Tom, looks like it was a good show.  The attention to details is evident.

Thanks Judy, we did the best with what we had. Most of our club members are less than 3 years into the art. The shows can only get better with time.
