Beauty Doesn’t Always Conform to Our Expectations



Before and after. This impressive and very unusual European olive (Olea europaea L. var. sylvestris) was styled by Javi Campos Juan.

Continuing with Javi Campos Juan (see two posts from earlier this week)… You don’t often see Olives styled like this one; more like a conifer than an Olive. Regarding this, there is a good argument for styling in the way the type tree naturally grows. Trees that don’t follow this standard often look unnatural. Still, there’s a lot to like about this one and beauty doesn’t always conform to our expectations.



I’ve been following Javi Campos Juan and his impressive bonsai on facebook for a while now. This is our third post this week featuring Javi’s trees. We originally featured this one February of last year (with some value added today)



After. Several big changes, including some serious bending of the trunk and plenty of refinement using wire and skilled trimming. Good pot choice too
