2017 Alabama Bonsai Society Spring Show, Part 1

Kathy Shaner was our honored guest, and she did a great job arranging our clubs trees into a very cohesive, nicely-flowing event.  Here are some photos of the overall show.  More soon!


Back wall, note the varying table height for the taller tree.  A nice touch, with an almost-tokonoma feel:

A shohin display (ok, my shohin display) with plenty of space to allow the viewer to contemplate the composition:

A collection of accent plants grouped together:

The left side of the center aisle featured a collection of rock plantings.  Quite a few were entered this year, and grouped together, it made a very intresting composition as a whole, and offered lots of detail for those looking closer:

The right side of the center aisle also offered good spacing to appreciate each tree and it’s chosen accent:

Kathy enlightening some club members as the doors open.  Karin (center) is our show chairman, and has done a fantastic job.
