Just back from Rochester and Bill Valavanis' International Bonsai Colloquium. Bill was his usual energetic self as he kept the program running at the usual brisk pace. Lots of great information was shared; well worth the trip. It was great seeing Ryan Neil, Peter Warren, Kora Dalager, Dave DeGroot, and Kathy Shaner. It was also nice to meet Dennis Makishima.
This was the first time Bonsai Shinsei New York was a vendor at a bonsai event. Not sure how often we'll sell at events like this, but it was fun to be one of the vendors instead of a perennial assistant to Sean Smith.
