This tree puzzled the attendees at the Kannapolis Winter Silhouette Show last December. It’s a tropical tree but it’s also what the botanists call a “drought deciduous” tree. In the dry season, which is usually winter in the tropics, they will drop their leaves just like an elm or maple. We in Bonsai are better at keeping them watered and warm so you don’t usually see them like this. It’s a wrightia religiosa, the water jasmine. And a little frog. And a monkey with a monkey on its back. Is this metaphor? #mybonsaiworld #bonsai #tree #floridabonsai #americanbonsai #trees #froggy (at Adam’s Art and Bonsai Studio and Nursery)

This ficus salicaria, on display at the 2017 Winter Silhouette Show, really had people scratching their heads, or hating on it, or just talking about it. It’s in an early Roy Minarai pot, and the color and texture of the glaze, as well as the wildness of the drip, go especially well with the crazy unstyled ficus. A pot that’s breaking the fourth wall and the tree that’s just all in your face with attitude. I think they work together. #mybonsaiworld #ficusbonsai #tree #bonsai @kawausopottery (at Adam’s Art and Bonsai Studio and Nursery)

We visited mr. Kobayashi today in his Shunka-en garden, Tokyo. Great views on the collection from the roof. The interview with mr. Kobayashi and full movie will soon be published on our YouTube channel!
