What is it about the Eel River and its stones? I’ve seen a lot of Eel River stones, but I don’t think I’ve seen any as striking as this one. Photo by Rosemarie Voelker of the Bonsai Societies of Florida. It’s one of numerous excellent photos by Rosemarie that are posted on facebook.
Attributed! Here’s another of Rosemarie Voelker’s photos from facebook. Aside from being a sweet little tree full of bright little crabapples (my best guess, but there is at least one other possibility I can think of), there’s something else to like about it; it’s attributed! In Rosemarie’s own words: “ASPAC Takamatsu, Shikoku, Shohin of Mr. Hirose.” Now if this were only the beginning of a trend on facebook (don’t hold your breath).
You don’t need to read German to enjoy great bonsai. Another great cover from Bonsai Art magazine. This is what can happen when an photographer/artist shoots bonsai.
For love of bonsai. If you are anywhere near Rochester, or, if you might be inclined to travel for love of bonsai, here’s something to strike your fancy.
For love of bonsai part 2. While we’re in Rochester, and speaking of traveling for love of bonsai…
Wired! Bonsai Mary has an interesting article on Ken To’s very cool wire bonsai sculptures. Ken won second prize in our Bonsai Art Contest (way back in March 2010) with his second ever wire sculpture. Judging by this one, his skills have greatly evolved.
Famous Yankee bonai artists. New England Bonsai Garden’s 14th Fall Member’s Day Bonsai Exhibition is coming September 8th (if you’re not a member, it’s easy to join). Nick Lenz and Colin Lewis; a couple famous Yankee bonsai artists will be the judges (the term Yankee is used a bit loosely in Colin’s case).
Man sitting in a very unusual chair. The photo has been kicking around on facebook for a while, but just in case you haven’t seen it.
