Hey guys just thought i would share some photos of todays expedition. It was a function held to celebrate Arbor day and introduce more people into Bonsai in S.A. The event was held by the Cape Town city council and local bonsai clubs in the CBD. Quite close to where a few of the World Cup 2011 soccer games were held. This is the first expo of this scale so everyone is very excited to get more exposure to this beautiful art. Attached are some pics of the most impressive trees in Cape Town and maybe in the whole of South Africa.
To add, sorry but i messed up with the photos, they are abit small because i didnt know what would be the size limit for uploading.
Rudi Adam, the old guy in the green top is probably the most experienced Bonsai practisioner in Southern Africa.
Carl Morrow is the guy that is wearning red and looks as if he is blessing the tree. He is also another one of the top Bonsai boytjies in South Africa. He started bonsai at age 15 or so. The amazing trees on display in the pics are their trees. Both of these men have written books and Carl is releasing a new edition to his book it is coming out in S.A in a few weeks.
