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.

Here' a shot lifted from GSBF's website. There isn't a caption, so we can't say much beyond 'great tree.'
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.
Speaking of Junipers…
Golden Statements magazine, winter 2016 cover. Looks like one of California's evergreen oaks (Quercus agrifolia?).
