The Art of Bonsai

Blossoming Plum Bonsai

I recently visited the Pacific Bonsai Museum, located in Federal Way, Washington. Saturday, April 8th will be the opening celebration of a new exhibit called “Natives.”

Below are a few photos I took of some of the fine specimens at the open-air museum, set in a natural forest setting.

    Absolutely marvelous! If I had to choose a favorite it would be #7, the one with two or three different trees combined. I imagine it must take a whole lot of patience to create these.

  2. That takes great skill to do that!

Thank you!
