I've always had a soft spot for three fingered Shohin bonsai (bonsai that are easily held with three fingers). Particularly ones from Japan, where most of the good ones seem to show up... at least in photos. This one looks like a Shimpaku juniper. It's from Bonsái Pavía, as are all the photos in this post.
Today must be my lucky day. Not only did I discover a new bonsai company (new to us at least), I also discover a never before used theme for Bonsai Bark… shopping for bonsai in Japan. The new company is Bonsái Pavía in Madrid, SpainThey’re the ones doing the shopping.

Another Shimpaku (the first four shown here are all Shimpaku junipers). Are there too many jins? Seems like a lot of people are commenting about excessive deadwood these days

Another deadwood dominated Shimpaku. You probably already know this, but Junipers in general are among the best at holding deadwood (meaning, deadwood rots more slowly on junipers than most other type trees)

I like the aged bark on this one

Looks like a Pomegranate. No deadwood

Is this a Japanese black pine?
