This year we were pleased to also have a great collection of small trees on a range of shohin and mame displays at our show. The detail of some of these tiny bonsai trees is exquisite and they also have the cute factor. Below are the photos from each of the trees on the displays for your enjoyment. Thank you to everyone who set up a shohin and mame display as the time required to plan and then prepare these displays is often extensive as well as the day to day maintenance and care.
Thank you to all the individual exhibitors at our Swindon Winter Image show this year, again stunning trees, beautifully presented and great to admire all day. We had exhibitors from all over the UK including Michel Brohet who travelled all the way from Belgium to exhibit his Pinus sylvestris in a Bryan Albright pot. Below are a collection of images of the individual trees on display.
This year was no exception, the standard of the club and society displays was again excellent with some very clean set ups and well thought out designs and themes to the displays as well as stunning bonsai trees individually. Thank you all for coming to the show and bringing your bonsai trees to the show for everyone to enjoy.
Superb collection of bonsai trees again on display again this year at our show and it was a tough judging time for our 6 judges and here are the award winners receiving their awards. Thank you to everyone though who had a bonsai tree on display at our show and helped in the set up plus everyone who came to admire them, it made for a very worth while and fun day and continues to be an enjoyable hobby for so many which is great.
Great fun was had by all this year again at the Swindon Winter Image Show. There were some great bargains to be had from all the traders at the show with some new and exciting pot designs as well as superb bonsai trees, sundries, bronzes, accents and tools on sale. A big thank you to all the traders for all your support plus raffle prize donations. We would also like to extend a big thank you to our show sponsor John Pitt.
