A couple of weekends ago the Eastern Cape Bonsai Society (EPBS) had their annual Bonsai Show at the Walmer Town Hall in Port Elizabeth. The EPBS was founded in 1969 and is having their 41st Anniversary this year. For a couple of years now I have been threatening to get myself a bonsai tree and take it up as a hobby. This year I will do it. I have a small Spekboom tree in a pot and have decided to move it into a proper bonsai pot and start training it. Here follows a couple of the pictures I took at the show.

I love that some people create a scene around their tree and doesn't just have a tree in a pot.
My favorite bonsai are those that grow over a rock. It takes a lot of time and effort to get it to this point, but its well worth it in the end.
Another one of my favorites. Bonsai Hibiscus in bloom.
