Nagahama Bonbaiten 2010

Nagahama is about three hours outside Tokyo, and puts on an annual "Potted Plum Exhibition" at Keiunkan, a former imperial rest house built in 1887. The rest of my full-size Nagahama photos, including the vendor area, are here:

Luv it. Just great to see natural deadwood coupled with beauty of flowers without any power tools.

I don't have enough superlatives! I especially like the white, weeping cherry/plum.

But they're huge!

Stunning!!! Thank you. I am enjoying my new 20 inch P. mume, v. 'Peggy Clarke', which arrived this week. The sweet spicy aroma is 'delicious'! I can only imagine what a room full of those large trees is like. Wow!
