Last weekend it was Noelanders trophy,One of the best shows in Europe.
It is a weekend with quality trees , selling stands , meeting friends and lots of fun.
The quality of the trees got much better than last year,
With a juniper chinensis styled by Kimura and owned by Luis vallejo that got first prize ,Mauro’s juniper chinensis itoigawa that got first prize of the kifu size and other nominated trees like simon temblett’s salix( grown from cutting and styled by him , he even made the pot.) And also got the Bonsai Clubs International President’s Award of Excellence.
And not to forget the great demo’s of Ryan Neil , Bill Valavanis , Jorge Campos, Mauro Stemberger and Vaclav Novac.
I must say Ryan Neil really has great talent for styling Bonsai and his way of explaining and teaching made the demo very interesting.
Many thanks to Bonsai association Belgium for this great exhibition.
And last but not least many thanks to Peter warren , John Armitage and Peter snart for making this weekend worthwhile for me.You guys show what Bonsai is about.
