Bonsai Exhibit at AntoLin Cellars

Yakima resident, Carl Lidke, will be on hand Saturday, June 15th to show off his sizeable collection of Bonsai trees.
Wikipedia describes Bonsai as: “an Asian art form using cultivation techniques to produce small trees in containers that mimic the shape and scale of full size trees.”
More than 20 Bonsai trees from the collection will be on display.
Carl has created and maintained these plants primarily in the Japanese style of this living art.
Some of these plants are “starter” trees and the oldest is 25 years old. This elder Bonsai is a Japanese Mugo Pine.
Carl will be on hand to answer questions about this craft and his collection. A number of the Bonsai trees may be available for purchase.
Retired Yakima resident, Carl Lidke, 68, has had quite a colorful and full life. He has 25 years in the military serving in Korea and Vietnam.
This prior to 25 years working as Circulation Manager at the Yakima Herald Republic.
And, Carl has been a chef for 15 years preparing food in Vancouver Washington and at regional hospital, Fieldstone Memory Care, in Yakima.
Carl learned to cook in Asia in addition to being self-taught in the U.S.
Food & beverages available for purchase including:
