Anybody planning to attend Bonsai Societies of Florida convention this year? It's my first year in Florida so I figured I better check it out.

No photography in the main exhibit, but here's some shots from the lobby.

Mostly, yes. There were about 4 great trees, prepared well, clean, mossed, and detail wired. The rest were good or better. I was quite impressed. The display area was small, but not crowded. The vendor area was much larger and dominated by tropicals, as you might expect.
