The Art of Bonsai
For those of you who are new to the term Bonsai, it translates to tree-in-a-pot. It is an art form of creating a miniature tree that would in nature be full size. Bonsai started in China then moved to Japan and other countries. When their are several trees in a container, miniature landscape or nature scene, it is called Penjing or "landscape in a tray". You will see examples of both in the pictures.
If you are ever in North Carolina, stop by the North Carolina Arboretum and spend the day. You will enjoy it.
I just returned from a short trip to Florida. On the way back home we stopped at a bonsai store and guess who returned home with a small bonsai? Me! I have got the bonsai bug for more!!!!
