    Unfortunatly now that I find out about the show on the day it begins I can't make plans to attend (and who has a show on mother's day weekend) .... I would have liked to have attended.

    Well I think the show turned out great - I have lots of pictures and here's one of the show winners. This Hemlock won best conifer award, by Scott Elser.

    And here's the winner for best deciduous - a shishigashira japanese maple by Robert Laws.

    The display was later adjusted by Mike Hagedorn - anyone wants to venture a guess?

    I think the pot should be centered on the stand?

    It seems the birds in the scroll are flying away from the tree. I guess the tree and the accent locations were swapped. I'm not nuts about how the tree stand overlaps the scroll either.

    Man, their website sucks ((BSOP, not Japanese Gardens)). I looked online last week and there was no mention of this event that i could find. I wanted to go, but there was no info available.. grrrr.
