Swindon Winter Image Show 2013

I spent an enjoyable day down in Swindon yesterday.......yes you can have an enjoyable day in's the day they have the Swindon Winter Image bonsai exhibition !

Here are a few pictures of stands I've made, (in use at the exhibition), and a few other pictures of Ashfield Bonsai Club trees on display and other trees/accents that I liked.

I'm sorry about the poor quality of some of the pictures, the sodium lighting at the venue is a pig and editing the pictures doesn't help much either.
