Descanso Bonsai Society 47th Show

I had the pleasure of visiting Descanso Bonsai Society 47th Show this weekend. This is one of those shows that I always miss because I'm usually traveling the weekend of Father's Day. But, this year they moved the show a whole week earlier so it gave me an opportunity to drop by and enjoy the show. At the Descanso Bonsai Society show they classify their trees in two major categories: novice and master level. They differentiate the skill of the owner to they can have a fair competition for winning best of show in their respected levels. I did arrive too early to view the results of the novice category but, I did get a chance to record the winners for the master level awards. If you get a chance its a beautiful late spring show to view.
