G'day Boon...

My grandaughter's husband (an Antioch homicde detective) took me to the BIB Bonsai Show yesterday, and I saw your Pandora...stunning...totally outstanding. Much more impressive up close and personal than the photos.

And, Boon, what a show! So many bonsai of such great quality. I have never seen so many high quality bonsai in one place and displayed so well...except the National Collection, of course.

Sorry that I wasn't able to meet you Boon, but I was so captivated by the display that I flat ran out of time. Hope there is another opportunity.

And Boon, thank you for the bonsai...and for contributing sooo much to the maturation of bonsai in North America.

Very cool planting.

Glad to see you experiment - setting a good example for your students to go beyond the Japanese way.

Hi Dorothy, I was not referring to the planting but the sci fi character on it from the current movie Avatar. I couldn't find that in old photo. I love you

G'day Dorothy...

Your "very old tradition" is cool...nice work.

I trust that you deliberately removed the "Navi".

Boon could not attend the 2nd US National Exhibition so he sent Pandora in his place. She brought him home the award for the
FINEST BONSAI & CONTAINER COMBINATION, the Certre Award. Congratulations Boon!
I enjoyed this creation very much and also the way it was displayed. It is good sized and the rock must be quite heavy but it was placed on clear plexi-glass "U"s to give the impression it was floating. Very cool! Earned the nickname "Space rock" by amazed viewers.

Having seen Pandora in person at the US National Exhibition all I can say is wow. Very nice planting.
The clear plastic stands were a clever addition.

There was another similar tree at at the US National EXhibition that was a bit larger and just as impressive. It was a Chinese elm over rock by David Easterbrook from the Montreal Botantic Gardens. The rock and trees on that one blew me away. Trees from the public collections were not eligible for the competitions but it was my favorite at the show. No photos - sorry.

Hi! all,....and yes especially mr Boon.

In simple words,...and again as novice....balance tree to rock could do more, as i see it.

Thank you everyone,
I wish I could be there. June is one of the busiest month for bonsai for me. it is Japanese black pine, azalea, maples season.

I have to thank Jim Gremel for the rock. I tried to buy it from him and he gave it to me instead. it was 3 years ago. it sat under bonsai bench. Until this past January, we put the trees on it. those 3 main Kingsville boxwood are 41 years old from cutting. They came from Seattle.

It is still young. In time, it may change.

And I have to thank Jim Gremel again for driving to Rochester. and help me exhibit Pandora.

Most of all Thank you Bill for starting the exhibit.


it is still young. In time, it may change.
