Bonsai tree: Strange & Wonderful Bonsai

Strange and wonderful. The bonsai rules have been demolished. The leaves are too big and the fruit is massive relative to the size of the tree. But rules don’t really matter all that much, and besides, flowering and fruiting trees receive a pass anyway.

Bonsai Guest House revisited

To quote from our last post “The photos in this post are from Bonsai Guest House in Osaka. I know almost nothing about the place, but you might want to check it out on your next Japan junket.”

Just wonderful. Everything about this bonsai is designed to show off it’s brilliant quince flowers. If it weren’t for the flowers, no one would give this tree a second thought.

Wonderful and strange, and oh so dynamic. Got a tree that’s too tall and thin for bonsai? Don’t let that stop you.

You can do it!
