Shuga Ten 2013
Juan Andrade, who is apprenticing at Aichien very kindly shared some photos taken at Shuga Ten on Facebook. I was blown away by some of the quality trees. I have shared a few of my favourites below but Juan tells me that John Milton will be sharing them all on his blog soon, so keep an eye open for this.

Nashville Bonsai Society Regional Show
Felt the need to share a link to this one. This is a post from Owen Reich’s Bonsai Unearthed giving a full run down on Nashville’s Show.
Don’t be thinking, ‘Another Gallery Show Report’! This one holds much more in it’s reading.
I can draw so many parallels between this show and exhibiting bonsai here at home. Our own club show tries to set the standard for display here but we have so far still to go as regards stands, kusamono etc but we are going in the right direction.
Then you have the old Horticultural Shows with bonsai classes, were you are given a tiny space for numerous trees! Is it worth bothering, or do we seek every opportunity to reach the public? More on that in a forthcoming post.
I digress … just click the image below and enjoy Owen’s take on showing bonsai.
I spent Friday morning with my son reshuffling my benches in my display area. I acquired a few extra railway sleepers and was going to do this in a few weeks time. However, my son has to make a promotional video for his Creative Media course at Tech and he’s making one for the club. He has to video me talking about the NIBS and I wanted to do it among my benches. One thing lead to another and well, see for yourself 🙂

Some more from the Bonsai Days Blog from a local exhibition in Japan.
BCI in China
Just had to add links to this! Photos from the BCI in Yangzhao, China.
I don’t think there is a single tree here that doesn’t make you think out of the box! Some I really really love and a few that are a bit out there but really made me stop and look.
Pots and mudmen not always to my taste but even some of these work for me! Don’t take my work for it, check out these links in IBC Forum and French Forum.
Nuts, but I love it 🙂
