Make your travel arrangement now, you will not be disappointed!

Today I finished selecting the display tables for my 50th Anniversary Bonsai Exhibit. There are 35 individual bonsai displayed representing 28 different species and cultivars in 15 classical bonsai styles. There is one shohin bonsai composition and an educational display featuring Koto Hime Japanese maples.

Although I have well over 100 display tables I had a difficult time selecting the appropriate table design and size for each bonsai. Every time I select the perfect table it’s being used for another tree so decisions must be made to which table and bonsai are the best match. I’m trying to avoid placing a deciduous or flowering bonsai on a display table designed for evergreens. But the final result will truly be stunning and representative of my half century of bonsai study and passion.

Next: I’m continuing to combine companions (plants, ornaments or suiseki) with the main bonsai on display, then proceeding to select the appropriate low stand and finally a few well spaced hanging scrolls.

Make your travel arrangement now, you will not be disappointed!

Many display tables have been selected



A small photo of the bonsai has been attached to the selected display table. This will hopefully make set up easier.

Finally finished selecting and preparing the 35 bonsai for my 50th Anniversary Exhibit. Display tables all selected too, as are the scrolls, suiseki and ornaments. Next up, selecting the companion plants. I have many to select from and hope they work to present the finest personal exhibit I've ever organized. Never again, too much work and stress... Please feel free to visit this special exhibit next weekend as well as the 22 vendors offing their finest supplies.
Some of the companion plants for matching to the bonsai.

Maybe you can hold off until your 75th anniversary for the next one! Looking forward to seeing the results of all this hard work. By the way, is there a vendors list available somewhere? I didn't see one on the website.
