Following a great evening workshop last month on accents by Ritta Cooper at our last club night, I have a greater appreciation of accents and how they are created and can be used to enhance the bonsai tree on display. I therefore took a greater interest in them today at the Bonsai World 2011 event at Crawley Lesiure Centre  and here is a selection of ones that stood out for me. If you are keen to see more, the show is on still through till Sunday 4th September.

Various bonsai traders also provided us with an opportunity to increase our accent collections and in particular Chris Thomas of Dragon Bonsai had some mini hostas for sale including a range of other plants suitable for accents and Simon Haddon of Suteki was also present selling numerous accent pots and accents.
