Trees for Bonsai
Here I am standing outside the entrance of the Noelander's Trophy Bonsai Exhibition in Genk, Belgium. It was a wonderful show and we had a great time. The Flemish "beer and chocolate" diet agreed with me, the people were very friendly, and we saw some really outstanding trees. I hope we can go again!
Many of the trees in the huge vendor area could have been prize winners in the show. This juniper is one example. It was a beautiful tree. It cost more than my pickup, but hopefully will last much longer and not depreciate in value with every passing day!
Inside my main greenhouse in winter. I think the trees must be getting a little bored and wanting to go play out in the sun again. But spring seems far off at this point.
