exhibit in the Nymphenburg park - part 1

Nymphenburg castle is the main castle of the King of Bavaria in Munich. The Porcellain Factory is part of it. It is celebrating the 260th birthday on June 21, 2007. We are having a bonsai exhibit in the park of the Factory. Harald Lehner and I are exhibiting 30 trees , 15 each. Here the overview of the exhibit. The big figurines are of porcellaine made by the factory.

Today was one of the highlights of my life. I had 45 private minutes with His Royal Majesty Franz of Bavaria to explain the trees and the art of bonsai. The King was most interested and impressed. He will be a bonsai enthusiast from now on. I am waiting for permission to show two photographs with him.

Well, Bavaria technically is not relly a kingdom anymore. But lots of people ignore this. I think Franz of Bavaria would be much better than what we have as politicians.

It's nothing strange that he became enthusiast. No man can stay unconcerned when you tell him about bonsai...
