My wife and I went to the nearby Weyerhauser Pacific Rim Bonsai Collection garden a couple days ago. I have neither the patience nor the skills to produce these, but I certainly can appreciate the talent of others. Here are just a few images.

Beautiful pictures John. I tried my hand at that about 15 years ago. Forget it, the only thing I can grow without killing it is ivy.

John, I agree with you about the patience needed and I could never do it. However, the end results are beautiful, as your photos prove.

i have always love bonsai. I am a very impatient person, so I've decided to take up bonsai-ing (is that a verb?) in an attempt to relieve some stress and work on my patience. maybe i will share my experiences here...

Lovely pictures. But i would never have the patience for bonsai. But one can certainly appreciate a artform that demands that much skills.

Btw. Wax on Wax of! Tongue

My wife has been doing bonsai for the last 20 years. She has some very nice trees. She just had to bring in the tropicals for winter, and will be putting the cold-hardy trees in the cold frame to protect them from too much snow breaking the branches.

Bad timing for bonsai photos - my wife put them to bed for the winter.
