Tired of taking mom to the same old brunch spot for Mother’s Day? Fear not! Something uniquely beautiful is on the horizon for Mother's Day weekend. And it's FREE.

Introduce mom and the whole family to bonsai, the art form of growing trees in pots, at the Puget Sound Bonsai Association (PSBA) Spring Show. This annual event features a diverse collection of beautifully shaped and artistically presented trees created by PSBA members, and displayed at the Pacific Bonsai Museum, a cultural gem featuring world-class bonsai from around the globe elegantly displayed in a woodland setting.

This is the first year the PSBA Spring Show will take place both on World Bonsai Day (Saturday, May 13, 2017) and Mother's Day (Sunday, May 14, 2017). World Bonsai Day is held around the world every second Saturday in May in honor of bonsai master Saburo Kato and his belief that bonsai has the power to unite people by acting as a bridge to international friendship and peace.

"We're dedicated to educating people in the art and culture of bonsai," said Edd Kuehn, President of the PSBA. "This year, we're especially excited to have the chance to introduce many more people to bonsai by hosting our Spring Show on World Bonsai Day and Mother's Day."

Moms, dads, kids, grandparents, aunts, uncles, and people of all ages will have the opportunity to view and vote for their favorite tree in PSBA's Spring Show, as well as stroll through the Pacific Bonsai Museum's world-renowned collection of trees.

The Spring Show takes place 10 AM - 4 PM on May 13-14, 2017 at the Pacific Bonsai Museum at 2515 S. 336th St. in Federal Way, WA, 98003 (just a 30-35 minute drive from downtown Seattle). The show is free and open to the public. The Pacific Bonsai Museum is admission by donation. For more info about the location, visit


This event is being cosponsored by Swanson's Nursery.
