    The Art of Bonsai Awards

    I am happy to see Lindsay Bebb included as a judge. Now that he has sold his business, I hope that he finds more time to be able to contribute to the world of Bonsai as I'm sure he has a lot to offer and perhaps he can encourage some Auzzie partisipation. I began my study of Bonsai with...

    Another "Talk Group" bites the dust!!

    What does your backyard look like?

    I agree Chris, it would be good to see some of the regular posters bonsai displays. I think it helps us understand a little about the person. John Hill has a very nice display that you can see here It shows the degree of passion that John has for the art. Dwight...

    How many bonsai enthusiasts visit bonsai sites on the Internet?

    Well, I'm over the whole Bonsai Europe, Bonsai Today debate. I believe that there is room for both publications and those who don't want to miss out on any little bit of information and can afford it will buy both. On the issue of numbers of people visiting sites, I can see a direct...
