A Brazilian Raintree that’s been developed in the Cincinnati area for about 15 years. Proof that you can not only keep a tropical alive up in the Frozen North but make it thrive and develop into an impressive tree. Chloroleucon Tortum belonging to Evan. #mybonsaiworld #bonsairoadwarrior #bonsai #trees #tropicalbonsai #frozennorth

I’m at the Krohn’s Conservatory in Cincy and I find an almost full sized ficus salicaria just growing in the rocks. Cool #mybonsaiworld #bonsairoadwarrior #trees #bonsai #ficus #fig (at Krohn Conservatory)

Two trees from the Columbus OH workshop yesterday (poor John, he came all the way from Toledo for me to chop his tree….) and the contrast with what you should do with a tree. The first tree had the trunk, and some good bones; chop the rest (it’s a yaupon Holly). The second tree had the trunk and the branches; wire everything (American elm). That’s how it’s done. The tree tells you what to do. #bonsai #bonsairoadwarrior #trees #mybonsaiworld #teachingmoments

Now there’s a motley bunch. I firmly believe that bonsai should be fun, and therefore I have been known to make faces when photos are being taken, beware. Photo by Pat #bonsairoadwarrior #mybonsaiworld #bonsai #trees #workshops (at Fort Wayne, Indiana)

I had the pleasure of visiting an old friend (Big Foot the ficus) and meeting some new bonsai at Petroleum Traders the other day. I worked hard on Big Foot a few years back (https://adamaskwhy.com/2014/06/28/eight-foot-tall-ficus-trunk-chop-how-low-can-you-go/) and I was delighted to see how much the tree has developed. It and all the trees there are diligently cared for by Darlene and Pat, and the great American bonsai artist, Guy Guidry, directs them and visits several times a year. Guy has sold several of his “babies” to the owner, Michael, and does a great job curating the collection. Thank you Darlene for letting me revisit Big Foot! #bonsairoadwarrior #mybonsaiworld #bonsai #trees
