Two More Award Winning Bonsai Favorites



I like the undulating parallel living veins on Jeremiah Lee's ABS award winning Sierra juniper (Juniperus occidentalis). I cropped the original (see below) for a closer look

Continuing with the prize winning bonsai from the 6th U.S. National Bonsai Exhibition, today we’ve got Oscar Jonker’s photos of the winning ABS Award Bonsai and the Finest Tropical Bonsai


This one of my favorites. For starters its sheer size is a mind stopper. I don't know the dimensions and I know memory can play tricks, but I'll guess five feet across. But impressive size is only part of its power. Its vibrant color and health, the arrangement of the trunks, the massive slab and other tangibles and intangibles add up to an exceptional work of bonsai art. I wish you had been there to see it. Oh, and by the way, it's a Brazilian rain tree (Chloroleucon tortum, also known as Pithecellobium tortum) from the Sho Fu Bonsai Society of Sarasota, Florida that won the Finest Tropical Bonsai award. I cropped the original (just below)


The original photo. Just getting rid of the top of the Pepsi sign is an improvement


Jeremiah Lee's Sierra juniper with companion


Apologies for the fuzz, but I wanted a closer look at the deadwood and living veins


Now, thanks to Alexander Hoffman, we have the names of the trees in John Kirby's Finest Shohin Bonsai Display from yesterday
