2013 Annual Exhibit Awards

2013 Annual Exhibit Awards

The Bonsai Society of Southwest Florida presented our annual show and sale on Saturday and Sunday, November 16th and 17th. It was likely our best exhibit! Many thanks to all who worked so hard and long to make this happen. The display was exceptionally beautiful with many excellent trees suitably displayed in the traditional style. A special congratulations to all for finding moss!
