bonsaiautumn 2009 - the exhibit

Around 60 hand-selected trees from Central Europe and Italy were shown. The event clearly has improved over last year again and by now is THE main event in Central Europe. The Dragon award is a significant trophy. The winner got 1,00 euro /1,500 US$) in cash. It was Enrico Savini from Switzerland with his world famous sabina juniper. The two runner-ups were Serge Clemence, Switzerland and Stefano Frisoni, Italy. My apple tree got one of the Dragon Awards. And it got a real lot of attention from the general public. Well, by some good luck the tree was ready with all the apples just for the show.(apple photograph with WP by Natalie Clemence)
