Members of the Martha’s Vineyard Bonsai Society asked visitors to their display at the Agricultural Fair to choose their favorite bonsai. The clear first place winner was a Japanese maple grown by Don Sibley.
The number of votes for the following honors was very close; in second place was a cedar forest grown by Jeff Donaroma, and in third place, a Chinese elm grown by Betty Trider.
Three plants were awarded honorable mention: Vincent Dellatorra’s grape vine; Ernie Carlomagno’s small leaf jade and his Shimpaku juniper.
The members of the Bonsai Club urge all who are interested to attend the next club meeting on Tuesday, Oct. 14 at Polly Hill Arboretum.
The Bonsai Club meets every second Tuesday of the month at 7 p.m. at the arboretum visitors center. For details, call Virginia Dyer at 508-645-9532.
