Adorable Little Trees

Bonsai: Japanese Black Pine

This weekend was the California Bonsai society's 55th Annual Show, held at the Huntington Gardens. I've been eagerly awaiting the reopening of the Japanese Garden, set for April 11. So, this show was like a delicious appetizer. ;-)

It's actually been a long time since I showcased a Bonsai show. Well, here are a bunch of photos to make up for my slackitude.

Bonsai: Blue Atlas Cedar

Amazing artistry. More after the jump:

As promised, here are a bunch of pretty little trees. ;-)

Bonsai: Chinese Elm

Bonsai: Boxwood

Bonsai: Liquidambar

Bonsai: Olive

Bonsai: Trident Maple

Bonsai: Ume

I really admire the skill behind cultivating such graceful plants. It combines the skills and talents of both the gardener and the sculptor, resulting in sublime beauty.
