Spring Bank Holiday Weekend, May 2011,
A cold wet weekend judging by what we are wearing
Plenty of activity
Here Dave and Alex working on a hawthorn
A completely new layout this year
More work on trees with Keith & Phil
Some of the exhibits
and a lovely flowering satsuki azalea
although a lot of flowering species were very early this year
and had already finished flowering
The pine below was not exhibited in its washing up bowl,
this tree was styled by Alex over the weekend
We also held a heat of the New Talent competition
and the pictures below show the 4 contestants from this area
and finally the winner, who was Carl from Glynderi Bonsai Club
As always we go around the gardens at Dyffryn,
and here is something that Al photographed on his rounds.
I wonder how many people know what tree it is?
It has to be a fir, and 2 are mentioned with blue cones
Nikko Fir (Abies homolepis)?
Abies delavayi (Delavay's Fir)?
