Alabama Bonsai Society 2018 Spring Show

Karin and Anika did an outstanding job again this year. Kathy Shaner was our show arranger and judge, who is constantly teaching and is a treat to spend time with.

  2. JBP over your shimp? Are you being judged against yourself here, or what? My two-trunk JBP looks as good/better. And nowhere close to your Ito…..what the hell?!?! I recall you mentioning Kathy’s thoughts on the JM. Not sure I agree with “best in show”, but what do I know? Your shimp was better.
    Thanks for the share and have a lip-smackin’ day!!!
