ACBS Picnic 2009
Gib's fine bonsai garden was the setting for the Akron Canton Bonsai Society's summer picnic and afternoon tree. It was attended by several members on a perfect July afternoon.
Several years ago at one of our club meetings, a landscape architect offered ideas about creating bonsai gardens to display favorite trees. Obviously Gib must have been playing close attention. His neatly landscaped backyard includes several gardens and tree display areas that were a real treat for the group--and a lesson in how to show off your trees.
Also, the tree jam focused on a large collected yew. Dan and Larry spent worked diligently--with no shortage of advice from others-- on some shaping and planning for how the tree will develop in the coming years.
