Walter Pall's caption for this tree is "Grape Vine #1 - grape is forming - color yet unknown"
I wanted to title this post "I heard it through the Bonsai grapevine," but then I thought many of you are too young to remember, and besides, iI don't want to trivialize such a strong tree. But I still like the song and the sentiment
You might notice how rugged and natural looking this tree is. Walter is a Western master of naturalistic bonsai (scroll down for a famous example)
Same tree, different background. Walter often shoots trees with two or even more backgrounds. This and the other two grape photos are from Walter's fb timeline
