2018 Annual Toowoomba Bonsai Show
Wonderful city! Wonderful Carnival! Wonderful weather! WONDERFUL Bonsai!!
There was a great array of trees on show this year. From advanced to beginner trees. We want all members to be able to show at least one of their trees. It is also true that you don't need to train a tree for years and years to develop the illusion of a tree with a story....
There were plenty of trees, pots, potting mix and other items for purchase in the sales area and many conversations were to be heard around the hall about the trees, the club and the interest that bonsai generates. Thanks to the many members who worked tirelessly over the lead up period. Months in preparation. Great people and a great club!
As is popularly referenced to John Yoshio Naka..
There are no borders in bonsai. The dove of peace flies to palace as to humble house, to young as to old, to rich and poor. So does the spirit of bonsai.
In the spirit of bonsai.... please enjoy our photos of the 2018 Bonsai Show. Consider dropping in the first week of the 2019 Carnival of Flowers. You will be VERY welcome!
