Bonsai: Its Art and Philosophy

Don’t miss the opportunity to attend the Bonsai: Its Art & Philosophy seminar and demonstration on May 17th from 6 pm until 8 pm at the Parker Education Center.  Dr. Charles Mortensen, a very respected expert on bonsai, will facilitate the presentation, discussion and demonstration.  This opportunity is limited to only 20 participants and registration is required by May 15th.  The fee is $5 for non-members and $3 for RBG members.  This is a fun topic.  I photographed all of these bonsai during the course of my travels.


We had a rainy day today but plenty of volunteer assistance inside the Horticulture Center.  We worked on potting up some summer bulbs (cannas and dahlias) as well as working on some preparations for the Spring Plant Sale (only about 2 weeks away!).  Grounds staff today included Larry O., Larry H., Bobby K. and myself.  Our volunteers included Kathy P., Eva, Barb S., Alan M., Ron P., Bill O., Vicki, Steve, Chuck, Jenny E., Deb G. (with granddaughter), Becky and some others.  It was another great day and we had plenty of “rainy day action”!
