WILD TREES

Deciduous trees! For those who have come to our bonsai nights or know me personally, well you are probably aware of how much I love deciduous trees. Apart from five conifers, all my bonsai are deciduous. European artists like Walter Pal really grab my attention with their natural looking, collected trees. Bonsai artist Marija Hajdic in Croatia is another to take note of. Her deciduous bonsai are incredible. Especially the collected prunus and carpinus. Here is a short video produced by Bonsai Empire (bonsaiempire.com) which shows one of her trees. More on Marija Hajdic below.

The website is meledabonsai.com . There are trees available for sale, but only shipped across Europe. We can dream. Have a look at her website to see the outstanding work she has been doing. For a deciduous bonsai fanatic such as myself, she is nothing short of inspiring.

MINOR FACELIFT & NEW RESOURCES

The East Van Bonsai website has undergone some small cosmetic changes. New resources have been added under the bonsai stockists and suppliers section. Check out all the bonsai related resources and stay tuned for more updates this spring. We are hoping to put together a show and sale this year. Fingers crossed, but we shall wait and see. Use the menu buttons or click HERE for the resources page.

Check out this post by Bonsai Tonight. Here I was getting ready to upload my photos from the event when I spot this post. His images came out better than mine. Enjoy this snapshot of the show. I had a great time there!

The Bonsai Society of Portland and Pacific Northwest Bonsai Clubs Association presented the 2018 Northwest Bonsai Rendezvous this month in Milwaukie, Oregon. The event was a big success! Three days of workshops, critiques, and demonstrations made the time fly by. Just steps away, a high quality exhibition featured some of the region’s best trees. Here…
