Every year there's plant fair at a big park at the outskirts of the city, and each year, we display some of our bonsai there.

This year, the day started under a grey sky, it began to rain at 10:30. Went back home at 12, now it's cloudy with patches of sunny sky, and 20° C ! (60F !!!) and I'll go there again tomorrow afternoon, I'll probably take more photos then.

Here are a couple of pictures before it was opened to the public, 9-9:30:

As you can see, we have some "young" members too (thirty-ish), and they are really involved into the club's life, a good omen for the future...

I like the thought of having such a presence at a larger community fair. My memories of Orléans are decades old now, but I would think it's a lovely place to be at this time of year. Keep this kind of presence in the community and you should find more potential members stopping by to see such lovely trees!

wish I could see some like that
Come to mainland Europe for your next holidays!

:cool:

Joking apart, there are great trees, bonsai, exhibitions in the UK. I don't know where you live exactly, but check these for instance:

https://expobonsaiuk.weebly.com/
https://swindon-bonsai.co.uk/

And there are many other exhibits or clubs where you live: meeting bonsai enthusiasts in "real life" is the best way to progress.
