Starting out

Post  Jeremy on Fri Jun 18, 2010 7:49 pm

Dragon are also including a "starting out" section. Showing trees under varying stages of development.
We are also giving the public the opportunity of hands on with a selection of larchs to play with.
Not having a demo, we feel, is a step in the right direction of de-mystifing our art.

Both of the above we tried last year and they were a great success.

If you are in the area come and give us a visit.
at the Welsh Game fair at Gelli Aur - Llandeilo, Carmarthenshire, S. Wales

Hello Jeremy

I really like the allover look of your show and you have got some wonderfull trees !!!!!

BUT...IMO......these Masterpieces deserve a lot more space.....every tree should stand "alone" to be watched on its own !!!!

Kind regards
Martin

Thanks to everyone for your replies.
Klaudia and Martin
I agree total with your feelings but this is our club show and is a chance for any member to show trees, add this to limited space and you can see the problem. we do tokanoma photo shots of individual trees throughout the year, have a look at the dragon bonsai web site

Dragon member, Colin spent most of the last 2 days helping visitors wire and style a number of larch.

Thank you Smithy.
The boyz and girlz of Dragon who displayed trees at our show.


I had a great weekend meeting and chatting with many bonsai enthusiasts and bonsai buddies.
A very hot and humid weekend sunny
A very happy, satisfied, and very tired Dragon packed up and said their goodbyes to the Welsh Game fair at Gelli Aur for another year. Very Happy

Thank you for your comments. They are much appreciated.

IMHO, Dragon members trees are getting more refined every year.
I was very happy with the quality presented last year, but I feel we have all made good progress in our refinement and presentation this year.
There is no selection process, members are told they can each show 3 trees. All we ask is the pots to be clean, the surface dressed and to have a stand. This year the first 2 requests were fulfilled 100% and the 3rd was very close, only the size of the pot beat us, but next year will be ready. Twisted Evil
The one thing that really surprised me was the size of the general increase in size of trees presented.
Very few under a chuhin (>24") and a few Bonju (>40") trees appeared. We will need to get higher backdrops. Laughing

This was the first time some of the members have shown any tree outside of their gardens. So for some trees this was their first outing.
I think they did really well. Congrats to them all. cheers

Greetings to all the dragons!
Congratulations for another job well done.

I was about to comment that you should show other trees aside from what you have repeatedly shown in the past but I am convinced by Jerrys explanation that this one way of showing the progress of the refinement and presentation of the trees.

I dont see Chris in your group picture, he must be the photographer?

Hi Pabling, great to hear from you,
I was limited to setting up and breaking down at the end of the show, staff shortage at the nursery so I was grounded for the weekend.
I am very proud of the boys and girls of dragon for producing such a good show and for working so hard on such a warm weekend.
Regards Chris

Hi Pabling,
What Chris failed to mention was, dispite taking, picking up and helping to erect and take down all the backdrops, tables etc he was sitting in the shade, sipping ice tea at his nursery all weekend , because everyone in Carmarthenshire was at the Game fair, watching Dave slowly cook to a bright red hue.


Chris, You where much miss.

Hi Carlos,
Thank you.
Think I need to give you a visit. I seem to have missed placed all my larger cutting tools!
Come to think of it it's likely my son have used them to make his new Tardis console, along with the typewriter and playstation, etc....

gamefair show

Post  Bob Bailey on Wed Jun 23, 2010 4:42 am

Hi Jerry
great looking trees,well presented with clean pots, top dressed and with stands,you and Chris must have really been cracking the whip! I,m sorry I cauldn,t get down ,but I have been busy getting my trees ready for Capel Manor this weekend,sorry you and Chris won,t be there, it won,t be the same without you.More food for everyone though!
I agree with Martin about the cramped look of some of the trees,But I know how difficult it is at club shows to please all the members who want their trees on display. He should have been at the recent Wessex Show where the Dragon and Celtic Knot displays were stunning and in my humble opinion should easily have won the best club display.
See you at Newstead in September.
