Bonsai Clubs International just finished a fun convention in New Orleans, Louisiana. The show was held at the New Orleans City Botanical Garden. After the storm there was 8 feet of water on top of the garden. It has recovered well but not without a lot of hard work by the citizens of New Orleans.

The theme was "Survivors of the Storm.
There was one Katrina surviving NO bonsai from at the show. It was this Buttownood by Jim Osborne. I will put the full story on my blog. cheers

Here is a Indian Laurel Fig (Ficus Microcarpa) I brought to the show in Ed Trout's van.
Due to my travel schedule I really wasn't able to prepare the tree as well as I would have liked, but the show needed trees from out of town as most of the NO bonsai trees were destroyed by hurricane Katrina.

I was somewhat busy and didn't take as many photos so if other have some. Please post.
