Each photo in the book is accompanied by:
• the tree’s common name
• the tree’s botanical name
• the tree’s height in inches
• the pot maker’s name or the source of the pot
• the year the tree was exhibited
• Members’ Choice Award distinction*
Juniperus chinensis sargentii, Shimpaku juniper, Japanese pot, height 16″, 2003, Members’ Choice Award.
The Members’ Choice Award is awarded to trees voted best of their class by Bay Island Bonsai Members. The shimpaku pictured above was voted the best medium conifer at the 2003 exhibit.
Although Bay Island Bonsai members may not exhibit the same trees in successive shows, members may show the same trees every other year. This allows returning trees, like the Japanese white pine pictured below, greater opportunity to develop between exhibits. By carefully perusing An Exhibit of Fine Bonsai, 2000 – 2004, you can follow the development of many trees through time.
