Post  boon on Tue Jan 19, 2010 6:28 pm

We have our show on Jan 16-17 at Alameda Fairground in Pleasanton.
here are some pictures. i will post when the time allowed.

the first is the display of a california juniper. it was the last tree that i collected from my first trip
now, it has a new owner, Peter Tea. He is very talented young artist.


the next one is a bird nest spruce. it was from Mas Imazumi collection. one of BIB member own it since 2005. we repotted it every other year in the beginning. but now it is so healthy. we have to repot it every year. it is displayed in a chinese antique pot and chinese antique stand

Nice displays Boon. You guys do a great job.

Is the spruce all trunk - is there a rock in there? Looks very stout.

The first time I saw examples of the trees owned by members of BIB I was impressed by their quality.
Once again a top quality display of trees.

You and your members are to be applauded........
