In some places the common old privet is not considered a good tree for bonsai. In other places it is used extensively and admired, thus is the life of this species. This is Ligustrum Vulgare and I have had it for a long time. It was rescued from a garden where I worked and I took home the stump and grew a few branches from that. That’s the history but this story is about the bees that come to get the nectar every year when it flowers. So the next couple of photos are of the bees. And just so you know how big this bonsai is, here is one of me trimming the flowers off. While I let it flower I don’t let it fruit as it is an environmental nuisance.
