Early photos from the BSF Convention near Orlando, FL. Sorry for the quality but the memory chip from my good camera will not fit the laptop and I forgot the adapter.

These are better pictures of the Bonsai Society of Brevard's (County, Florida) winning entry in the Club Night competition at BSF 2011. Each year at our state conference we have two competitions, clubs enter and develop an instant bonsai in about three hours. This is a slab planting using F. salisicaria. First shows the team working and the second shows the completed planting with trophy. The plants worked on are auctioned after the banquet and this sold for $701.

Congratulations to my club. How many of these competitions have we won now? 5 or 6? Sorry I missed the convention but GOOD JOB guys.

Wow! A lot of familiar faces there, Billy. Looks like another good one for the Florida society.

Billy,

No way that is a Neea buxifolia. Looks like a Chinese Elm to me!

Cordially,

What I am saying is there was a beautiful Neea in the exhibit. The tree shown here is indeed an elm.

.. and Ryan Neil is an eye opener. What a great artist and person! I am absolutely confident that Ryan will elevate the quality of bonsai in the US and elsewhere.

Cheers, dorothy

Billy and Dorothy,

The Nia in the blue pot is one of the first Neea trees imported to Florida in the late 80's to early 90's. It was trained by Mr. Carlos W.Consuegra to the present form and later sold to Mr. Sullivan.

Thanks for posting. It is really great to see old friends!

Regards,

Jose Luis
