I guess I should be taking the wire off this American hornbeam. It’s so hot and humid in Orlando though…….#mybonsaiworld #bonsai

My demo tree at the Bonsai Society of Brevard’s zoo show last weekend. It’s a Simpson’s Stopper (Myrcianthes fragrans). The second pic is the before pic, the red outline is how big the canopy started out as, and the after pic (the first one) is illustrating the principle taught to us by John Naka; try to make the shortest tree you can when styling a bonsai. #bonsai #trees #mybonsaiworld #floridabonsai #nativebonsai

Jerome’s poor root-over-archer didn’t like how close I was getting with my scissors yesterday at the Ficus Festival. I was only going to take a little off the top….#mybonsaiworld #bonsai #trees #tropicalbonsai #americanbonsai #floridabonsai

I have a busy three days ahead of me. Today, I will be teaching at a Ficus Festival hosted by Rob Kempinski, and tonight will be the cfbc’s annual carving workshop. Tomorrow I will be at my Hukyu studygroup in Tampa while my wife is vending at the annual Brevard Club Zoo show, and then I’ll be there on Sunday. I gotta keep on keepin’on. #mybonsaiworld #bonsai #floridabonsai #tropicalbonsai

It’s the details and the little things that make up a bonsai. A Conocarpus erectus which will be the next blog post subject. #mybonsaiworld #bonsai #trees #driftwood #tropicalbonsai #americanbonsai #floridabonsai (at Adam’s Art and Bonsai Studio and Nursery)

Delivered this Brazilian Raintree to its new owner yesterday. It’s in a pot that has sentimental value to the family and will help the tree develop quicker too. I’m seeing it in a more shallow oval in a few years. We are going for a tall tropical flattop style with multiple levels. The photos just cannot convey the muscling and amazing twists in the trunk. #tropicalbonsai #bonsai #mybonsaiworld #trees #americanbonsai (at Adam’s Art and Bonsai Studio and Nursery)
