I'm thrilled to be participating in the Spring Bonsai Festival at the National Arboretum this weekend! I find this an especially beautiful time of year there, because the Azaleas are in full bloom. AND, if you're curious about learning the art of Bonsai, this is your opportunity. There are lots of demonstrations and workshops (some free!) all weekend.

Sunday, May 8th, 9 - 3
