Don Ziemann

For very old-time members of the IBC (back into the mailing list days and early WWW) you may recall Don Ziemann. Carl Rosner sent me a note today that he died July 10 of pneumonia acquired after breaking his hip.

Sad news Jim.

Condolences to those he left behind

I'm not that much of an Old Timer and remember Don and his Grape Vine bonsai well.

I got the impression that he enjoyed the wine as well

Very Happy

I see the website is down unfortunately but there is a couple of pics here for anyone who may wish to have a look.

Ah yes, I remember him well. A good-natured guy who enjoyed the grape, and willows, if I remember correctly.
May he rest in peace.

Sad news. I have several grape bonsai in development as a result of his posts from years past.

I remember Don well and having a discussion about the merits of Grape bonsai, he said... if the tree don't turn out well there is always the wine! I remember too he had a lot of Zinfandel bonsai... drunken
