Kenny’s trees at Dai Ichii Bonsai show in LA area

Here are the pictures of the trees that Kenny showed last weekend.  As you all know Kenny is one of those far away members.


Bonsai work on a California Juniper

James goes to work on a California juniper. He and Boon are spending some time discussing the tree before the start of cut-back, jin and shari-work:

6-8 hours later, and much wood removed, James has further refined his bonsai stock. The tree has now a flow, the jin work has really gotten started (but there is much more to go). Now there are the beginnings of sharis down the trunk. Boon is a great believer of doing things in stages to insure a future bonsai’s maximum health.

Sure it is rough. But the future is there. With futher refinement, wired branches in a few years, and with filled in foliage, it is going to be a powerful looking bonsai.
