I just got back from Chicago, and I had the opportunity to see the bonsai collection at the Chicago Botanic Garden. I took pictures of every tree on display so I could post them here for you guys and gals. I didn't edit any of these so none are cropped or rotated like I would prefer, but you get the idea. Overall I was very impressed, and the rest of the gardens there are also very nice, and it was larger than I expected.

Here's the last couple bonsai pics, and a nice old Chinese pot (1115-1234) I saw at the Art Institute of Chicago.

Thanks for your effort in posting these for our enjoyment!

You're welcome Barry. The Japanese garden was also very nice and I'll try and add more pics from there later when I have more time.

Hey Wood, I missed the show by a day. I was in Chicago all week doing the tourist thing but flew out on Friday. Here are a few pictures of the Japanese garden though.
