This prize winning Ficus neriifolia belongs to Ed Trout. I like its relaxed, almost sensuous look. Or if you're not into anthropomorphizing bonsai, you might just notice its wide stable nebari and its stout well tapered trunk and leave it at that. All the photos in this post are from Bonsai Mary.
In keeping with our tropical theme from yesterday and our mention of Mary Miller (Bonsai Mary) from the day before, I dug up this up from our archives (April, 2010, with some editing today)
Mary Miller’s years of experience as a bonsai teacher, author and grower come together very nicely in her Bonsai Mary website and blog. One of the things that sets Mary’s writing apart is the personal touch that she lends to her discussions of bonsai and life, and even to challenges putting together her own website (that was written in 2010, so I’m not sure if these challenges are still in play).
