Congratulations to Dragon Bonsai for winning the Best Innovation Award at the Swindon Winter Image Show sponsored by Dan Barton and judged by Dan too. There was a second winner of the award and this went to Kit Bowns for his stunning hand made Bonsai pipe display which was exquisite.
It was a great opportunity at this years Swindon Winter Image Bonsai Show to see a fantastic array of bonsai styles, shapes and sizes as well as a good diversity of tree species. One style that captured my interest was that of the cascade and semi cascade.
This year the bonsai traders were again selling a fabulous range of everything bonsai and some of their sales tables were also great exhibits too. Here is a quick look at the traders who attended the show and hopefully everyone bought a little something from one or more of them.
The work that is involved in putting on any kind of show is usually quite considerable and this is true of a bonsai show. The Club members and their families who help to support the Swindon Bonsai Club displayed many of their own bonsai trees this year.
Shohin and Mame were represented well at this years Swindon Winter Image Show and not just as displays but as companion trees to larger trees and as part of club displays too. Here are a selection of the tiny trees that caught my attention at the show.
