Spring has come to my plums in Central CA They bud out a bit behind the ones in the ground. Should be in top form later this week. They are still in training pots, I know. Sorry for the poor quality photos.
Simply stunning. Bonsai entrance us by their simple beauty. Such a complex form - a tree- so simply stated in a single pot. All human foibles in a tree in a pot.
I have my own goofy versions of bonsai out in our garden. Most of them I"ve grown from seed and are conifers : spruce , lodgepole pine, a cedar I harvested over a decade ago. For my "bonsai" ( in reality : tami's tinky trees in pots in her backyard ) , they share space next to the BBQ and the herb -slash-messy garden and remind me of my days out treeplanting.
