Golden Bonsai Statements 2/17/17


Magnificence in miniature. This is one of the most striking mame (literally 'bean') bonsai I've seen in a long time. And I don't think we need to say much about the pot, it can speak for itself. At a glance I'd guess this little bonsai is from Japan, but we can't be sure without attribution. I found it at the Golden State Bonsai Federation.* Here's part of their caption: "Steve DaSilva reminds all FBS (Fresno Bonsai Society) members that there will be four shohin bonsai workshops offered on Saturday, April 22nd, at the Koen-Nai fundraiser for the Clark Bonsai Collection..." For the rest you can visit them here.

I have long been a fan of the Golden State Bonsai Federation and Golden Statements, their excellent magazine. You can visit them at the GSBF website and on facebook.

This juniper looks like a Procumbens (or maybe a San Jose, though the color isn't quite right). The shot is from GSBF's facebook photos.
