For today's pictures I had another go at photographing some of my bonsai. The first one I ever owned is now over 30 years of age and has survived years of neglect so now I care for it and re-potted it last year. In bonsai circles it would win few prizes but I love it.

Two others in my collection were dug up in my customers gardens as self sown seedlings and I suppose they are around 20 years old.

I just adore them at this time of year when the young foliage emerges.

You should go into the catering business, Ken. This week I read that the official best restaurant in the world is in Spain. The restaurant's speciality is serving caramelised olives attached to a bonsai tree. There's a challenge for you!

Had a go at growing a bonsai years ago ...... it went into the bin. I marvel at the look these scaled down versions have.

The hornbeam looks so strange. Like its leaves are full size on a tiny tree - more like a bush.
My dad used to love bonsai but he was hopeless at it. Smile
