LSBF Dallas 2012 convention show pics

Post  JMcCoy on Mon Sep 03, 2012 4:45 pm

Time kept getting away from me to post photos from the LSBF (Lone Star Bonsai Federation - the Texas state Convention) show in Dallas this year, but as Dario had told me.. better late than never! I thought Dallas did a fantastic job with the show and the convention. Guest speakers were Ryan Neil, Kathy Shaner and Michael Hagedorn, and I think everyone went away energized and ready to create! Here are some photos I took at the exhibit.

Best In Show and Best Conifer, voted by the visiting artists, Western Juniper (Juniperus occidentalis)


Best Tropical and People's Choice winner Buttonwood (Conocarpus erectus)


Best Native winner Ashe Juniper (Juniperus ashii)

..the tables were set too close together for me to get a better photo of this tree, it was too big

Best Deciduous winner Ginkgo biloba


Some details from the Ginkgo.. I personally loved the prehistoric display with petrified redwood cones:


.. and Archaeopteryx drawing in the scroll by the artist's daughter:


Other fantastic Bonsai in the show:
Korean Hornbeam (Carpinus coreana) forest


Ash Juniper (Juniperus ashii)


Cedar Elm (Ulmus crassifolia)


I loved the whimsy of the accent from this one:


Dwarf Yaupon Holly (Ilex vomitoria 'Nana')


Chinese Elm (Ulmus parvifolia) forest on stone


Western Juniper (Juniperus occidentalis)


Sandpaper Tree (Ehretia anaqua)


Boxwood (Buxus microphylla)


Chinese Holly (Ilex cornuta)


Water Elm (Ulmus planera)


Ficus nerifolia (or salicifolia or salicicaria or subulata or whatever it's currently being called)


Hinoki Cypress (Chamaecyparis obtusa)


Western Juniper (Juniperus occidentalis)


Shohin


Dwarf Yaupon Holly (Ilex vomitoria 'Nana')


Corkbark Elm (Ulmus parvifolia 'Corticosa')
