2019 Summer Show People’s Choice Winners!

The results of the People’s Choice voting from our 2019 Summer Show are in!

Congratulations to Alex H for his Hawaiian Schefflera which took First Place!

Second Place went to Steve Z and his Juniper Sea Green and Anne H’s Japanese Larch forest took third.

The nicest, most heartening aspect of the whole thing is that, except for a couple of trees out of the whole 60+ trees in the show, every tree appealed to at least one person enough to list it on a ballot. Tells us that each person’s efforts, even when the result isn’t a spectacular runaway winner, added a little memorable beauty that touched someone that day. What more reward could we ask for the work we put in?!

Cleveland Bonsai Club member wins MidAtlantic Bonsai Society President’s Award

The Cleveland Bonsai Club is very proud of club member Mel G who took home the President’s Award for his Shohin display, as well as Best Accent Plant, at the MidAtlantic Bonsai Society Spring Festival last month. Mel’s display consisted of: Top–Japanese Back Pine, Upper left–Star Jasmine, Upper Right–Japanese Chojubai Quince, Lower left:–Zelkova elm, Lower Right–Kumquat–Outside tree–Shimpaku Juniper. Note that each pot is a different color and shape which is one of the important criteria for a good shohin display.

Well done, Mel!
