Last weekend the East Bay Bonsai Society held their 55th annual show at the Lakeside Garden Center in Oakland, California. On display was an assortment of conifers and deciduous varieties, including a number of trees that did a great job of conveying the season.
First up is a medium-size black pine.

Among the more seasonal displays were those featuring ginkgo and princess persimmon bonsai.
One specimen that I don’t often see in bonsai exhibits is yucca.
