I borrowed this potless Rocky Mountain juniper from Michael Hagedorn's Crataegus Bonsai Portfolio. Here's part of what Michael wrote about this old yamadori... "This juniper has been growing in my backyard for a year. It’s a client tree, another of the great native yamadori that was collected by Randy Knight of Oregon Bonsai." You can visit Crataegus for the whole story

Continuing with the Michael Hagedorn’s bonsai and his now famous book

The photo and caption above are new. Most of the rest of this post is from April, 2009 when Bonsai Bark was in its infancy (our first post was February, 2009). I know that the news below is ancient for some of you, but I also know that many of you have are not yet familiar with Michael’s Post-Dated, let alone its prize winning history

This cropped cover shot of Michael Hagedorn's Post Dated provides a powerful hint why the Publishers Association of the West choose it for a Gold Award in design.

If you been following this blog for a long time, you might know that we featured a review of Michael Hagedorn’s ground breaking book and a two part interview with Michael in February, 2009. Since then, my enthusiasm for Michael’s fascinating bonsai and life adventures in Japan, hasn’t wavered a bit. It’s still a great book and I still recommend it with the full confidence that you will enjoy it as much as I have

The award in PubWest’s own words… “It is my great pleasure to inform you on behalf of the Publishers Association of the West that Post-Dated: The Schooling of an Irreverent Bonsai Monk received a Gold Award in the 2009 PubWest Book Design Awards Short Stories/ Poetry/Anthologies category. I want to thank you for entering our contest and congratulate you on your award-winning book!
