Terry Adams gave a brilliant presentation for us with a slideshow of images of trees in nature and how they offer serious food for thought when it comes to bonsai design. He presented his ideas on designing bonsai trees based on his many years of observations of nature. He has gained inspiration from many sources
The judging of this show took an unusual format – visitors were provided with a voting slip and asked to nominate a numbered tree worthy of winning. I think anyone who has been to a bonsai show and questioned the judge’s decision might think this of this as a good idea. I will have to report back to let you know who has won.
