I borrowed this delicious little gem from Michael Bonsai. Michael doesn't say who it belongs to or what it is, but given his fondness for Japanese black pines, and given that it looks like a Japanese black pine, well you get the drift. We could even go a little further and speculate that Michael took this photo in Japan; he's been know to do such things and the tree does have a Japanese feel

Continuing from yesterday with Michael Bonsai photos and another plug for this weekend’s  Mid-America Bonsai Society Show & Sale

A small man contemplates a Japanese white pine from below... Here's Michael's caption... "Happy World Bonsai Day - May 13th. World Bonsai Day celebrates Saburo Kato’s belief that bonsai has the power to unite people by acting as a bridge to international friendship and peace." Okay, we're three months late, but for some of us, everyday is a good day to celebrate Saburo Kato's belief that bonsai has the power to unite people

Close up of the tree at the top of the post. I love the way the moss, lichen and bark fuse and bind the tree to the soil
