Thanks for all the positive comments everyone.  I am well aware that I have lots to do on these and the rest of my trees, but it's nice to see them progressing, and get feedback on them.  (both good and bad, it's all good...)

Yes card holders- thanks, JL

What kind of tree is the last photo in your first post? It's really neat.

Hackberry! Underused for bonsai, if you ask me.  The twin trunk is also hackberry...

Very nice Judy, I really like your twin trunk hackberry. The white pine and the Big hackberry are really nice too.

I saw the 2013 exhibit at when it was held at Franklin Park Conservatory. Your comments are dead on, a wide range in quality, and not too many at the upper end, though there were half a dozen that were quite nice. It made me realize how good I have it with the big August Show at the Chicago Botanic Garden, and the remarkably high quality trees I see at the Milwaukee Bonsai Society shows.

Your hackberry looks very dialed in and ready to show  ;D.

Thanks Leo.  I did offer some ideas to the organizer about at least doing a critique. Apparently they have done so in the past, so maybe they can get back on a better footing in the future.   I am going to look into Chicago at some point, depends on how the time line works out.  I hear there is lots to see, and drool over there.

Thanks Owen, getting there.... gotta get that other white pine moving again soon. ;)

Judy, very nice set of trees. Two dimensional photographs are very harsh , especially when you haven't styled the trees specifically for photography. Look into Chicago, I would also think that the Hornbeam and the Hackberry should be ready in two years for the Rochester Show. Keep them coming along, getting your trees out in exhibit is a great motivator for making those fine tweaks to make them really fine.

Sorce, what planet are you on?

Keep it up Judy!

John

Image 3526. First tree in reply #5.

Is this not a sloppy finish? I don't think it should be showed like that.

On my planet, or any other.

The record states I farking love Judy's skilled detail work, commitment to excellence, and midwest trees, so I didn't rezt that, I hate rezting.

Rezting = texting. Lol

Or wtf did you mean? Of course I am not from this planet. But I am desperately trying to warp down to meet Walter Pall this August in Illinois. Would love to meet all you guys there.


Gleefsho. = goodbye in Saturnalia.

Thank you John,
I do agree about photography being tough on the tree, but it makes me be tougher with my eyes too.  I have a looong way to go.
