Two of Ritta's Shitakusa at the Best of British Bonsai 2011 show

Post  Mark Cooper on Thu Apr 14, 2011 4:23 pm

Here are a couple of small Shitakusa that my wife, Ritta, created.

They were used in our bonsai displays at the recent Best of British Bonsai 2011 show.

They both measure about 15cm (6") tall.

Mike - thanks. Sorry that we didn't get the opportunity to say hello.

Chris, Bob and Fiona - Ritta says thanks very much.

Gary, here's a photo of one of the above shitakusa used in the display with our Cork Bark Chinese Elm, a tree we have had for a couple of decades now and grown from very humble material.
I don't have a photo of the display that the other Shitakusa was used in. But I do have a picture of the tree at the show, a tall Trident Maple, root over rock style, if that helps ?... do say if you'd like to see that.

Again, Very nice! It very much reminds me of a Spring scene that is typical in the Willamette Valley region of Oregon.
