Bill Valavanis has a great new article titled “2019 2nd US National Shohin Bonsai Exhibition“. The article is full of great trees and great displays. I like to look at the display stands and try to figure out how complicated it would be to make some of them. You can learn a lot about Shohin tree displays by reviewing this article. Another thing of interest is 2 lady artists won awards. Its good to see women taking an interest in Bonsai and winning awards! I have added the article to the Shows/Museums/Botanic Gardens page.
