Cardiff Bonsai Club 2011



E mail us on:


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





Including suiseki












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)?
