As the theme for this month was Trees in Flower Fuji Cherries – Kojo-no-mai were well represented with three trees entered in the Advanced Class. Evidently the name means ‘Flight of the Butterflies’ and what an attractive way to start the spring bonsai season looking out of ones window at a tree like this. They are by their nature a very bushy shrub and need a fair bit of work to define a trunk and develop a tree like silhouette.
First in this class was Tony’s lovely Crab Apple a really super display of spring blossom.
