After limited bonsai exposure over the last few months, it was good to get a little Penjing into the system today. I found my way over to VanDusen Botanical Gardens for the Chinese Penjing Society of Canada Exhibition.

While I do not really subscribe to the Penjing way of styling, I do appreciate a good tree in a pot. This is not an exhaustive account of the trees that were there, but I think I captured the best ones.

My favourite tree of the show, definitely has a bonsai feel about it…

…And one to show that even a seedling with little to no training can capture the feeling of great beauty.
