On February 28th 2016, I had the great pleasure of attending the Swindon Winter Image Bonsai Show held by the Swindon and District Bonsai Society, England. This was my first visit to the Show and I was very impressed with the high standard of trees that the Show attracted and the display generally.
Here follows a selection of my favourite images from the Show; there are some omissions thanks to the vagaries of my camera! Species are stated where possible but it is not possible to identify all of the owners and artists of these bonsai, so in fairness, I am detailing none.
Pinus sylvestris/ Scots Pine bonsai
Carpinus turczaninowii / Korean hornbeam bonsai
Celastrus orbiculatus/ Oriental Bittersweet bonsai

Ligustrum ovalifolium/ Common Privet bonsai.
Prunus spinosa/ Blackthorn bonsai.
Ulmus procera/ English Elm bonsai.
