During Memorial Weekend Holiday, the Santa Anita Bonsai Society had their 52nd annual show and exhibition. This show is one of my favorite spring shows because all the trees are in their full glory. Every tree either has full pads, fully flowering, or full of juvenile fruits. Talking to Dave Miles, President of Santa Anita Bonsai Society; he says this year has been the largest showing of trees from their members of all time 47 trees. He also mentioned that the visitors so far enjoyed the variety of trees shown. Which is not typical of other clubs which are heavy showing a single type of genre of plants. He also did mention we did have an even spread of tropical, evergreens, board-leaf evergreen, deciduous, shohin and chuhin trees. If you are in town during next years show drop by you will not be disappointed.
