We are super-excited to have been invited to a prestigious local event. Fish Brothers Swindon are holding a Japanese themed entertainment evening of drinks, sushi and other festivities on Thursday 28th March at 7.30pm. Lexus are launching a new vehicle and we’ve been asked along to display our bonsai also including:
Late winter flowering bonsai are always a stunning sight and can cheer up any a gloomy day. Here are a few examples seen this year in February and March of Cherries, Quince, Forsythia, Larch, Blackthorn, Chocolate Vine, Japanese Apricot and Witch Hazel to name but a few.
Chris not only put on an individual exhibit this year but he was also one of the traders at our show. He presented a yamadori Larch (Larix decidua) that was collected 14 years ago, which he has been working on, and styling and developing since then and it was in a Gordon Duffett pot.
Mark and Ritta’s shohin display was very stylish with a Juniper and Zelkova accompanied by an accent and scroll. Both trees were superb in quality and condition and the image presented was simple and effective.
Great to have Les exhibiting his mame trees this year, a great diversity of species on display and well presented. He used a very interesting mame display case, which really enhanced the setting of the mame trees. He had some lovely jittas underneath each tree and his crane accent was fabulous and fun.
