here are (better late than never) some pictures from the 7e BONSAI FROM HET WESTEN SHOW that was staged 1 & 2 June in the botanical garden in Delft (NL). I showed there my XL Larch and one of my Hawthorn in full bloom and on the Saturday I did a demo on a difficult large Urban Yamadori Yew. It was another successful great little show and a lot of enthusiastic visitors came to see it!

Below: My dear friend Teunis Jan Klein brought a wonderful taste of Summer to the show!
Below: My student and friend Ed van der Reek made a nice display with on the left his Berberis buxifolia and on the right side his Chamaecyparis obtusa “nana gracillis” and a nice antique Tanzaku holder with a painting of a Geisha.
Below: Ed was over the moon when he found out that his Chamaecyparis had won first price in the evergreen category and his Berberis became second in the deciduous category! Ed was really proud and so was I! Well don Ed!!!!
Below: Some pictures of my demonstration. At the end of the show, all demo trees of that weekend became prices in a lottery!
The weekend was over before we knew it! It was yet another successful “Bonsai van het westen” edition and I am looking forward to the next one! Don’t miss it and CU all next year!!!!
