Carolina Bonsai Expo

Post  JimLewis on Fri Jul 25, 2014 1:14 pm

Arthur Joura sent this out to regional clubs:

The 19th annual Carolina Bonsai Expo will take place at the NC Arboretum on Saturday, October 11th and Sunday, October 12th, 2014.

This year's guest artist is David DeGroot. Ask any person knowledgeable about bonsai in the US to name the top 3 public bonsai collections in the country, and the Pacific Rim Bonsai Collection will almost certainly be on the list. David DeGroot has been the curator of that collection since its inception, more than 25 year ago. His expertise in the horticultural aspect of bonsai is matched only by his understanding of the design principles that make it an art form. In addition, David is an engaging teacher and an entertaining speaker who has traveled extensively throughout the country as a visiting artist. Some old-timers in the crowd might well remember him as the Expo guest artist in 1999, and if you missed him then you will appreciate this opportunity to get to know David. Those who already know him will be, as I am, pleased to welcome him back!

Thanks Jim. As always not to be missed. Make your reservations early as hotels fill up weeks/months in advance. See you there.

Putting finishing touches on my trees, cleaning pots, and planning their transport up to set up with the Blue Ridge Bonsai Society on Friday.

Weather should be spectacular and there's a bit of fall color on the trees in the mountains, too -- especially on the Blue Ridge Parkway, which passes adjacent to the NC Arboretum.

Hope to see some of you there.
