2013 MID ATLANTIC SPRING FESTIVAL EXHIBIT

Post  William N. Valavanis on Sun Apr 21, 2013 4:38 am

The 30th Anniversary Spring Festival 2013 of the MidAtlantic Bonsai Societies is taking place on April 19-21, 2013 in Harrisburg, PA. In addition to an overflowing vendor area and a member's exhibit there is a Professional Invitational Exhibit. Jim Gillespie has organized this well balanced display of 15 bonsai for the past three years and does an excellent job of inviting professionals to display a bonsai in a special room dedicated only for the Professional Invitational Exhibit.

Attached are the display photos of all 15 bonsai exhibits.

I hope you enjoy looking at the photos as much as I had preparing my own personal bonsai for the public.

We are all very lucky that Bill V. Is not only a Bonsai Pro but also a definite shutter bug!

Looks like you timed the quince just right Bill.
