Last Saturday the Napa Valley Bonsai Club held their 2015 exhibit at the Senior Center in Napa, California. The one-day event featured a good-sized display area indoors and vendor area outside. I had the honor of working on a demonstration tree in the afternoon.
As spring is in full-swing, the exhibit was full of fresh foliage on deciduous varieties, the conifers featured bright green foliage tips, and the broadleaf evergreens sported tiny new leaves in the process of replacing last season’s leaves. It was a beautiful show and a fun event to attend. Below is a sample of the trees on display.
For those of you who haven’t done so already, now’s your last chance to submit questions for this morning’s AMA with Michael Hagedorn. Michael is an outstanding bonsai artist and an insightful teacher. Some fun facts about Michael:
- He worked for years as a professional bonsai potter
- He apprenticed in Japan with Shinji Suzuki
- He wrote a great book about his apprenticeship
- He’s danced the tango for years
Check out the fun today at Ask Bonsai Tonight – Michael will begin answering questions around 11:00 am Pacific Time.
