Time for Some Serious Bonsai Training
Tamarisk (Tamarix) from Ryan Neil’s International Bonsai Mirai gallery. Aside from the fact that this is an exceptional bonsai, there is much that can be said and learned about Tamarix; as an invasive foreigner and a worthy subject for bonsai. The excellent description on Bonsai Mirai is well worth a look, as is what Wikipedia has to say about this intriguing plant.
Go west middle aged man (woman) and anyone else
While we’re on the subject, check out Ryan’s Defining Concept Courses. If you’re the ambitious type and you can create the time, you could head out to Portland and combine some serious bonsai training at Ryan’s and Michael Hagedorn’s (Crataegus Bonsai).
Getting better. Remember this tree? It’s a somewhat famous Foemina juniper that Michael Hagedorn has been working on (and improving) for a while. We featured an earlier version last year.
Speaking of Portland, don’t forget next year’s Artisans Cup. To whet your appetite and answer your burning questions, they have a website and a blog.
