Hi,
My first visit to the invitational.
A few pictures i took, some repeated from Will.








My personal fav.









... and for scale, a picture of a passerby. Will "the not so bad" Baddeley


I had a very good day. Lots of bonsai buddies to chat with, lots of good traders and many great displays to enjoy.
A big thanks to Big Steve and all involved for your hard work and vision.
Invite me again Steve.

Two threads on this but different trees in both. Great stuff. For a while there the tropics were taking over !!
Love the winning pine and the Pyracantha.
The tokonoma with the shohin cascade juniper is the best display for me.
Thanks for taking the time to post all these. Keep them coming...

Hello Kenbu. The pot for the White Pine is a Gordon Duffett. Good isn't it.

Wonderful trees.
Can you tell us more about Capel Manor - is it a club or group of clubs? Regardless, very consistently high quality trees and presentation.
