Went to the Alabama Show in Birmingham today, Great Show! Many Beautiful trees, big turn out for the event. Talked with BFV and meet Mellow Mullet and got to talk to many other interesting people. Took some pictures for screen saver viewing and picked up a couple of trees from Michael McDaniel / Blue Mountain Bonsai. Michael came down from Henderson Tenn. most of his stock is collected from woods and yards when being worked. I got a bald cypress that a beaver had cut the top off, collected in 2017 and a crepe myrtle collected first of the year from a yard working. Super nice guy, enjoyed talking to him.

Good to talk with you as well Michael.
Good to meet you too John! Thanks for the cuttings swap, looking forward to seeing those blooms next spring!
Here are a few shots from the show; it was well-attended, but could have used a few more trees.

Congrats Brian! Well deserved!

The pads now look like they are angled towards the left. They used to be more horizontal. Is this a design decision or is it the photo?

Thanks Serg! I have been moving it to the left a bit, but the room is really hard to get decent photos in. It is much cleaner in person.
