Hello Friends! I hope you can visit me this coming weekend at the National Arboretum for the Potomac Bonsai Festival. I'll be selling pots made especially for these magical little trees. I'm thrilled to be participating again this year. It's a fun and intimate event filled with people who are incredibly passionate about this living art form. I'm guessing that many of you, at some point in your lives, have thought to yourselves, 'I'd really like to learn about Bonsai.' or 'I'd love to have a bonsai tree!' or 'I should get another Bonsai tree because I killed the last one (SAME).' Well, now's your chance! There will be lots of demonstrations and workshops (some free - see schedule below) all weekend. Also, the azaleas are blooming and Arboretum is just lovely this time of year. Friday, May 5th, 9am- 5pm Saturday, May 6th, 9am - 5pm Sunday, May 7th, 9am - 4pm
