What a unique location! Wonderful! Would have loved to be there...

The location is unique, yes. But, judging from the photographs, it's not very suitable for a bonsai exhibition. Or, to put it differently, the way the exhibition is staged, is not very suitable for displaying bonsai.

Well, these are not really bonsai, these are tree sculptures. In this venue since decades sculptures are exhibited with great success.

Hello Walter,

I don't know who set up the exhibition, but the atmosphere is wonderful. Much better than the standard "bonsai" exhibit with just tables and cloth. This place gives the trees such a different feel. Beautiful work. Where and what Castle was this at? Germany? Austria?

I didn't go back far enough to see that you posted the location earlier. I hope I can visit Dalmacia this summer for some vacation time. Still the most beautiful ocean in my eyes after visiting many coastlines.

Thomas,

this was the 1,700 year old palace of Diocletian ins Split, Croatia.

Call them sculptures if you like, but on their Facebook page it says: "Marija's & Andrija's bonsai tree exhibition".

Next time I want your opinion I write to you before. OK?

The photos of the trees suffer from the variegated background of the stone walls, but I'm sure the trees are stunning when viewed in this venue in-person. Potted trees are designed for close examination in-person, and seldom translate to photographs well. WP has done a great job with his gallery. (Walter, I know you aren't shy of criticism, but maybe we don't need to read everyone's opinion)
