Some very fine trees here. Great variety and attention to detail.
The 7th image down could be named "Inazuma" (Lightning)
Gotta love the British Soldier lichen.

Hi Bruce
Thank you.
I like the "Inazuma" (Lightning) name for my twin trunk hawthorn.
I try not to name my own trees myself, so it is very welcome when someone see for me.

"Gotta love the British Soldier lichen." Those particular soldiers are definatley Welsh. Smile

Hi
Thank you Stephen. Moving it is not so much fun. The owner of the elm, Chris, I think considers it as more a patio or enterance tree.

Brian and Roy,
Thank you both for your continued support. It's alway a pleasure to see you both.

This is the fifth year Chris has hosted the Winter show outdoors.
Good company. good bonsai, interactive demo's, great food pig and shared bonsai passion = An enjoyable and successful show.
This is the first time it has rained in the 5 years. Sad But we all carried on as usual,
Q.E.D. Bonsai can affect you mental state. Very Happy bounce sunny Laughing Cool Very Happy

Dang! Missed it again. Will get down to one eventually Jerry. Looks like it was a brilliant show. Well done to you, Chris and all others involved.
