                Dick, what are you talking about. You have Dan Robinson nursery farm quite near you... I enjoyed his nursery and teachings very much when I was up there..

                  I quess i'm not looking so much for a yamadori teacher as i am a working stiff that loves to grab a tree and come visit....I spend a lot of time visiting weyerhaeuser and their national display of bonsai trees from around the world. Wish you guys would grab a flight up to seattle some time and I'd pick up up at the airport and run you over to the bonsai exhibit. It's on a par with the national in that other washington (DC)

                    I went to weyhauser bonsai exhibit. But they were closed when I was passing through.. Is the kengai Satsuki still on display?

                      You never know what will be on display at any one time. They have about 3x
                      the amount of trees needed for display and will pull one off to work on and subsutitute something else. They do have some wonderful satsuki's and they will start to show some color here in about 2 months. My satsuki sensae John Lust passed away last fall, and his best tree was donated to the exhibit and will be on display. I have about 6 decent azealas....

                      The have an aka matsue I've been waiting for , for 2 years to come on display now...I know david and his assit well enough that i go visit it in the private area. My favorite is a japanese black pine that was started in a tin can from seed by an american who happened to be of japanese ancestry during world war 2 and ended up being confined in a prison camp during the length of the war. the tree speaks to me emotionally because of it's humble beginnings, and now as a finished bonsai it is really a work of art.

                      If you decide to visit again pls let me know

                        Dick, this is the tree when it passed on through the San Mateo Bonsai clubs show on its way up to Weyhauser..

                        This tree had it own luggage
