Memory Lane – Tokonome displays at Newstead Exhibitions

Looking back….we can tell a tree’s story…..admire an image…..capture a moment…..remember a special event… inspired – to create a memory for tomorrow. 

I hope you enjoy this regular peep into some of John’s bonsai history.

Memory Lane – Tokonome displays at Newstead Exhibitions
The show garden had become a major part of our first Newstead Bonsai Extravaganza and was therefore designated as a permanent open space in the top greenhouse away from the sales benches. This did not last long! We decided to build four substantial Tokonome display alcoves that would become permanent features not only in the top greenhouse but also in every display garden in every bonsai event held thereafter.
The Tokonome displays in the garden setting housed some splendid trees over the years and became a memorable feature of our exhibitions. I hope the pictures below will stir up some vivid memories for those of you who visited our events……and for those of you unable to attend…..”let’s have a look at what you could have seen!”…………
