Accent plants of the 2013 REBS Exhibit

California Bonsai Art

The accent plants at this years exhibit keep getting more like Ikebana than an accent for a bonsai. Some of these accents truly take away from the tree exhibited due to the profusion of species mixing in the pots. Aside from that, the artistry used in the making of these accents are breathtaking. A little inspiration for your next accent potting day.

I thought these too were wonderful accents but have no idea what the purpose of keeping the tags in the accent is for. maybe placing the tag under the slab or matt would look better….DSC_02080208

Sandev Case Study Videos 1 & 2

Sebastijan, have been working hard to get these videos out and I thought that since I missed a day blogging yesterday [shock horror] that I would share these over the next few days.

Production quality is superb as you would expect from him and I love the funky intros 🙂 The videos show Walter Pall, know him? critiquing bonsai in his own unique way. I will say that there are a few things here and there that I don’t personally agree with, but that’s hardly unusual in bonsai circles ❗
