Bonsai Parade

This post was inadvertently neglected for last year's line-up. The Bonsai Exhibit at the Quezon Memorial Circle, Quezon City, Philippines, was last April 28 to May 11, 2016. It was simultaneous with the Cactus and Succulents Garden Show. In a couple of months they will be having an exhibit again, so i need to post this now.

That time i actually accompanied a friend to a lecture on cacti and succulents.  Even the heat didn't deter me from shooting, and i also saw some real photographers and videographers perspiring a lot while doing their job. This bonsai exhibit showed plenty of plants than previous years. I am not so addicted to bonsai, but i confess i am now smitten. It looks like the most endearing and favorite collections are all brought here, in one place. They look so fragile that transporting from their gardens to the exhibit site is surely very difficult and the plants were stressed much. Oh how i pity the caretakers!

several long tables in white settings served as bonsai background

the ordinary Ixora becomes so elegant in this bonsai arrangement

a forest bonsai dish is my personal preference, if i will do mine it will be a forest

i am biased with this arrangement, the forest type

but i love to look at them all, this looks so very very old now

this looks like a ballerina doing pirouette
 

this ficus bonsai is luxuriantly leafing red

the foot of an old Singer Sewing Machine has found a new purpose in this elegant landscape corner

Those mushrooms are luxuriantly growing at the foot of a bonsai, makes them so elegant too. I guess i know the secret why the mushrooms grow there, i have a guess, as i frequently see this in the farm.

look at the mushrooms in relation to the bonsai size

There's a lot more styles in the exhibit, i just chose some to post here. Do you agree with me with their elegance. I know different folks have different choices. Now which are yours?
