Bonsai of the Day
2 weeks ago Nebby 0
This dramatically undulating Japanese Maple in its spectacularly vivid full fall foliage splendor (blame it on too much coffee) resides at Showa Memorial Park in Japan. I stumbled upon it and some other mind popping photos on a recent post titled Bonsai of the Day by Oscar at Bonsai Empire.
The only connection I can see that ties these photos together is none of them are shot with neutral backgrounds (my usual choice). This and the fact that I like the trees… but that applies to all the photos we post
This one also appears on Bonsai Empire, but you may have seen it elsewhere, including in Gnarly Branches, Ancient Trees and right here on Bonsai Bark. It's a Sierra juniper (Juniperus occidentalis australis) that belongs to Dan Robinson. Photograph by Victrinia Ensor.
This colorful creeper belongs to Harry Harrington and is, to say the least, quite snug it's impressive little pot. Here's Harry's caption... "My Parthenocissus quinquefolia/Virginia Creeper bonsai, now coming into Autumn colour. Planted into its new pot by Victor Harris of Erin Pottery just this year, I collected the tree itself less than 2 years ago where it had been growing up the side of a wall. Height 22"/56cm"

Nature's bonsai. I don't remember where I found this photo, nor do I remember where it was taken... but for some reason I think the mountains in the background might be the Alps. But don't take that to the bank, it's just a guess
