Today Is World Bonsai Day...!

05/09/20

This Japanese beech planting belongs to Sergio Cuan, who happens to be the illustrator for Michael Hagedorn's Bonsai Heresy

 

Today is World Bonsai Day, so here they are... world bonsai. So many people have generously offered photos of their trees and the variation is spectacular. All types of trees from almost everywhere, and they range all the way from magnificent to strange and back (you can substitute 'daring', for 'strange' if you like). We put some up Wednesday, now here are a lot more for your viewing pleasure.

All the photos shown here are from California Bonsai Society's World Bonsai Exhibition pages on Facebook (scroll down the bottom for the link). Enjoy!
