As I sit here sorting through my photos from the weekend two things are clear to me. First, this was without doubt a top quality Shohin exhibition that any country in the West would be proud to be associated with.
Second, I don’t actually think the trees were the best part of the show! I see the other among the tree snaps that have captured the amazing atmosphere at Willowbog Bonsai, a special place. Like minded people doing bonsai how it’s meant to be done. More of these photos at a later time.
The only down point of the weekend was the news that this will be the last BSA Show hosted at Willowbog. Time for the batton to be passed and for the Exhibition to look at pastures new. Peter and Jean have been absolute sterling hosts and their passion for the BSA and this event was there for all to see at the Saturday evening award ceremony. Thank you both.
So here’s part one. I have just started to go through my pics and hopefully part two will be out tomorrow. I see folk appealing for photos on Facebook so I thought I’d at least try and get a few up tonight before turning in. These are just in the order that I started to walk around the exhibit. A lot more to come.
