This last weekend at the Midori Bonsai Show (California), Peter Tea took “Best in Show” with this California Juniper.
Here is the same bonsai in 2004 – using the other side: http://bonsaiboon.com/bib/bib2004/content/Img2004_01_11_115109_large.html
The tree has definitely matured as a bonsai.
Thanks to Mary M. I got to see some of the regional competition in Hanford that just took place. It looked like a lot of fun. I was in Florida during the event, but if I am in California with free time, I want to see the next one.
In the picture below you have Peter T. with his display. Great job Peter – and thank you. I was really glad that we had B.I.B. representation at the event. I hope that it just keeps building. Quality displays are always what we strive for.
Though we are in the process of updating every thing, don’t be shy about commenting on any part of the site. Great feedback has already started.
