Dragon bonsai at The Swindon winter show.

Seven members of Dragon bonsai attended the Winter show at Swindon on Sunday.
This show over the last 7 years has got better and larger. It is one of the British bonsai seasons highlights.

Nice show. Seems like some very spiffy trees on display. I like Bob's larch. Perhaps with a smaller pot and with some slope to the sides and with a larger slab it would be more dramatic. The scroll mimics the shape in a pleasing manner.



I see a problem common in US shows. The displays are a bit crowded.

No problem, it was just a suggestion on the larch.

The quality of the last few trees was superb. I really like Simon Temblett's style. I had the privilege of meeting him last summer and saw more of his trees. - he has real talent. Likes lime sulfur too! sunny

Ian Stewartson has great trees as does Steve Tolley. Nice show guys.
