Fall and winter are always a busy time of year for me, and my blogging rate falls off accordingly.   Right now, I am about to start final preparations for the 10th Anniversary Bay Island Bonsai exhibit, which will be  held January 17-18, 2009.  I am showing the four bonsai you see above, and Mas is planning two suiseki displays.

This year’s show trees are sleeping right now, but in a couple of weeks I will dress each one up and get it ready for display.  This includes various activities such as applying a top dressing of moss, removing wires, and cleaning and (lightly) oiling the pots.

Coming up in the New Year I’ll return with more of Mas’ suiseki, as well as some photos of the interesting places we saw in our recent trip to Japan.

Meanwhile, Mas and I would like to wish you a Good Solstice, and a very Happy New Year.

    Hi Janet,

    The Bonsai Exhibit looks like a very interesting event. Is it only for the trade or can the public attend?

    Happy New Year!
