March 2014 Newsletter

Our February meeting was a workshop. It proved to be a busy night as we were all working on our trees. Our March meeting is going to be another workshop—so bring the trees you want to work on.

The Bonsai-A-Thon at the Huntington was a successful weekend. I would like to thank all our members who helped out through the weekend. Hopefully we all came away with a few new ideas and secrets from watching the demonstrations and visiting the vendors.

Spring time is the start of club shows. Try to attend as many as you can. Please check page 6 of our newsletter for clubs and show dates. This is a good opportunity to meet your mentor and take them in. The California Bonsai Society is having its 57th annual show on Saturday and Sunday March 29th and 30th at the Huntington Gardens. If you are only able to attend a few shows— this should be one!

Spring is around the corner so keep an eye on your trees. With the warm weather many trees are budding out. For many bonsai enthusiasts, their repotting program is well under way so give this some thought.

I would like to emphasize our niche display program. The display serves two purposes. First, it allows us to practice setting up a complete bonsai display with finished tree and accent plant. Second, it also functions as our work-in-progress display. If you have a tree you are working on and developing, it is good to discuss it with other members. Does anyone have spring flowering trees in bloom that would make a stunning niche tree? Please let me know.

See you Thursday, March 20th.
