Spring 2007 Mid-America Bonsai Exhibition

The Midwest Bonsai Society has been in existence since at least 1967, and probably as far back as 1957. The Society recently produced their third May Bonsai Show at the recently renovated Regenstein Center in the Chicago Botanic Garden.

It was their first show at the venue, and was held on Saturday, May 19 and Sunday, May 20. This was a non-judged show, and so was open to all who desired to enter a tree. While the show was not judged, the Society made available demonstrations, workshops, and a vendor's area for material, pots, and tools.

A good time was had by all.
