Beautiful Bonsai

To be honest I’ve never really liked bonsai all that much. Too many interior decorators seem to think that if you have a bonsai and a Buddha in the same room then you’ve got an exotic Japanese theme. Not to mention that identical bonsai’s cultivated in bulk are somewhat less than impressive. But seeing these pictures made me realize that growing bonsai’s really is an art form of its own, at least when the Japanese do it.

Sorry I can’t remember where I got these pictures from so no links today.

  1. Yes, once you look away from the mass produced box store “bonsai” you will discover that there is a world-wide community of bonsai artists who create some truly wonderful living art.
