Look familiar? We featured another iteration a last week. This masterpiece Shimpaku is from Kunia Kobayashi's Shunka-en Bonsai Museum. Its massive flowing deadwood with its single living vein jumps out. As does its strong and compact crown which holds its own in contrast with the sheer power of the deadwood.
A little change of pace. This one is a Diospyros Kaki Japanese persimmon, also from Kunio Kobayashi’s Shunk-en Bonsai Museum.
This muscular old Camellia, full of flowers and buds was taken by Bill Valavanis during a visit to Shunka-en Bonsai Museum back in 2018.
More color. This one looks like a Princess Ppersimmon and the pot looks like it has a story to tell. Photo also courtesy of the omnipresent Bill Valavanis as is the photo just below.
