The European Bonsai San show is getting better and better each year. Last year they invited four of Kimura's disciples (and we had the honor to interview mr. Kimura himself) - this year they have a guest of honor who is bringing the best pieces of his collection to Saulieu: mr. Luis Vallejo.

And with demonstrations by David Benavente, Peter Warren and Michael Tran this year's edition was unforgettable! In this post we share the winning trees and an overview of the show.
