San Diego Bonsai Club Spring Show 2017

If you were in the San Diego Balboa Park area this weekend you were treated to beautiful spring show. I have to admit San Diego Bonsai Club has the best location of any club in the Southern California region. They had hundreds of non-bonsai participants walk through the exhibit and really shine a light on this craft.

Spring events are my favorite because you get to enjoy the full foliage of the canopy and late spring flowers if they are timed just right. Without further words the trees of this 2017 San Diego Bonsai Club Spring Show.

San Diego Bonsai Club had this great looking icon stone at the entrance.

Gary and John was the MC of the night. John won the airfryer!

The crowd was wild for the raffle after the great dinner menu that Abe Far put together.

To end it all. This great photo-collage of San Diego put together! An idea that we need to share with clubs! Thanks San Diego for hosting it was a blast!
