Carolina Bonsai Expo @ NC Arboretum

Post  JimLewis on Sun Oct 11, 2015 10:30 pm

I managed to drag myself to the Expo an hour before takedown this afternoon.  (Spent it chatting with Chris Cochrane and several other IBCers while being pushed around the show in my wheelchair.)  Had an enjoyable time, and even managed to take a picture or two -- but not like I usually do.  Sorry.  Maybe others can add to this . . . (HINT)

A Pyracantha twin trunk that looked better in real life than on camera:



One of the ribboned trees (Walter Pall was judge): A landscpe:



My little windswept trident, which Walter said he liked:



A nice black pine:



And a gee-whiz juniper whose crowning value in MY eyes was the pot:



The pot:

Dodged more than a few rain drops, but managed to make it.

Some great trees there guys, thanks for posting the photos!

I'm still buzzing from spending yesterday at Bonsai Europa over here in the UK but it's really nice to see what's happening on your side of the world too!

Regards

Richard

Jim,
 Your windswept trident looks good in the photo but it looked great in person.  I liked it better than the firethorn. 
Thanks 

I didn't get any pics because my phone was dead.

I agree.  Some trees just do not photograph well.
