    2nd smallest dwarf japanese maple

    found this at the roseburg show. A vendor there bought out old man vertrees place and was
    propagating some of his stuff. The leaves are about 3/4 of an inch in length. Thought you'd might like to see it as it's pretty unusual.

    Was a great show BTW, larger than the year before so the KHV scare and Cost of Gas was not a deterent for the show.

    Had a chance to give a seminar on tosai selection with emphasis on shiro utsuri as they were having a grow out contest.

    Always great to meet folks up from other areas visiting the show...

    Very pretty Dick. The leaves are so tiny! Anyways, here's a pix of one that I just completed this past weekend. I know that it's not a typical bonsai, but a bonsai none-the-less.

    Hi Tony, not sure what type of tree it is. Will ask the nursery where I got it from to see if they know.

    Here's a couple more Satsuki Azalea. The larger is now 55 years old! It's also in the process of being re-trained.

    Yes, all the Oz big fish koi shows were back in April and May. I will start a new thread with some photos. Show participation continues to be healthy here too.

    ps. I always find the following bonsai website to be inspirational and helpful

    Yes, I have two Black Pines in the front yard and a Scotch Pine over 75 years old in the back yard by the pond. Here's a pic of the Scotch Pine-
