South of the Bonsai Border



Can something be both dynamic and relaxed? Or does it even make sense to talk about a bonsai as relaxed? In any case, this unique beauty makes its home at the Museo Tatsugoro - Estudio De Bonsai Miguel Ros, Fortin, Veracruz, Mexico. In case you're wondering, what happened to the top of the photo, the answer is just below. For many more great photos where this came from, here's you link

I’ve long been fascinated with Mexico and have been visiting somewhat  regularly since college years. But I’ve never been to Veracruz. Guess it’s time to put it on the agenda.

Siempre he estado fascinado con México y han estado visitando algo regularmente desde los años de colegio. Pero nunca he estado en Veracruz. Imagino que es hora de poner en el orden del día. 

All of the photos shown here are borrowed from the Museo Tatsugoro – Estudio De Bonsai Miguel Ros, Fortin, Veracruz, Mexico
