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

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)
