March 2013 Triple Demonstration

 Three demonstrations were conducted at the March meeting of the Bonsai Society of Victoria.  Members enjoyed the creation of a Juniper raft group and a Desert Ash penjing and the restyling of a large Atlantic Cedar.  Demonstrators did an excellent job as can be seen in the photos below.  Also, many thanks to the MC who along with the demonstrators provided an interesting commentary and many helpful hints for bonsai artists.
