The Redwood Empire Bonsai Society held their annual show on August 29 and 30th in Santa Rosa, CA. The show is the biggest in Northern California and among the best in the state. The trees, demonstrations and vendor areas are always a late summer treat.
Over the years Frank Bardella, and more recently Bob Shimon, have built the REBS show into a wildly successful event for which they and their over 100 members deserve lots of credit. This year’s event was particularly notable for introducing an educational component on bonsai evaluation. Here is a sample of the trees that were on exhibit.
