Heathrow bonsai show 2015

27 Oct

This is one of many people’s favourites at the end of the season, the show has steadily grown over the last few years. All credit has to go to Mark and Ming and the team of helpers they have to stage a great show. This is a look at some of my favourite trees.

   
    
    
    
    
     
    
    
     
    
     
    
    

The dead wood on this Yew was superb and the way the swollen live veins frame the shari give it a good feeling of age.

Capel manor bonsai show 2015

6 Oct

It all starts early in the morning with the rest of the back drops going up.

   
    
 
   
    
 
By 10:00 it’s all up and judging takes place while we have a coffee. Then it’s back into the room to see if we agree with the judges. Well done to the worthy winners the beech (purple) that was best tree in show was an air layer.

   
 
Grandad Geoff on guard!

  Here is the best display.
   

This was my favourite display by John A.

This weekend saw the one day show at the Capel manor gardens Enfield. A good standard of trees on display. Pictures later but here is a video to wet the appetite.
