I was just there last weekend. The display is no more but the arboretum is nevertheless amazing to walk through.

Amazingly enough, the displays change weekly as Bill gets the time. What you are seeing are the displays of this week, the video being taken on July 14, 2011.

My bonsai displays generally change daily, according to what looks good, how I feel or who is scheduled to visit my garden. It's raining right now (and we need it badly) so I have no idea what will look good to greet my "Senior Crew" who will come to assist me today. Perhaps I'll post images from today's display later on, after things dry off. Bonsai do not photograph well when wet because the bark and other details are not clear.

This Japanese hornbeam looked pretty good a few days ago, in peak fruit. Perhaps I'll display it today.

The Japanese hornbeam looked good, not too wet so I brought it into my studio for display in the formal tokonoma alcove. Then I brought in some smaller bonsai and grasses for the other side of the room.

Enjoy the bonsai. My Senior Crew and two visitors from Erie, PA and Buffalo, NY seemed to like them. They are now all back outside and well watered.
