Joy of Bonsai?

Three of my favorite trees from the displays at 2010's Joy of Bonsai event in Bath... there were some nice trees there but it was far to busy and cluttered to really appreciate them, shows like this are not really my thing I must admit.

Corkscrew Hazel in flower




This Corylus avellana "contorta" (also here) has been edited slightly and is now in flower, with its catkins extending. The male flowers are the catkins, which are obvious, but there are also tiny red female flowers at the end of some of the buds.
