Annual Nursery Crawl

Standard

2757099597_189757ab00_zThis Saturday, May 3, we are having our annual nursery crawl. We will begin at 9 am at Jung’s on Northport Drive. See Devon’s email fromMarch 22 for a map and a complete itinerary. Feel free to join or leave the crawl as your schedule permits.

General membership meeting: Thursday, May 8 – the second Thursday comes early this month. This meeting will be devoted to a BYO workshop. So bring something to work on, your tools, wire, plastic to cover your work area, and a pot (or two). The club will provide a bucket of soil. There are also a few leftover larch and black pine that will be available.

6851328329_605bf2b399_bAnnual show, May 17-18 – start planning what trees you intend to show. We all want our trees to be perfect and we should strive towards that objective. However, keep in mind the public will be thrilled with even your worst tree. It is also instructive to show what can be achieved in a short time. So, if you have something recently styled and created, don’t hesitate to show it. It helps dispel the notion that bonsai HAVE to be old. We will need volunteers to set up, guard the trees, sign-up new members, tear down, etc. etc. Mary will have sign up sheets at the May 8meeting. We also need four people willing to demonstrate.

Hope to see you Saturday!
