The Bay Area Bonsai Associates held their 32nd Annual Exhibit this past weekend at the Lakeside Garden Center in Oakland, California. Roughly half of the trees in the exhibit were displayed informally in long rows of bright green foliage. The rest of the exhibit was set up in displays, each about 6 feet across. I really appreciate the effort that went into this year’s displays, so I photographed the trees as they were set by their owners. First up – BABA’s shohin bonsai.
Shohin at the front of the room
Six-tree shohin display – a great mix of conifers and deciduous bonsai; great pot variety and well-selected stands
Four-tree shohin display – pink blossoms mark the season
Six-tree shohin display – another nice mix of varieties
Three-tree shohin display – I always enjoy the circle-stand
Six-tree shohin display – some trees in leaf, some out of leaf, and another just starting to leaf out
More displays later this week!
