A nice look at a Bungin Juniper on Owen’s newish blog.
I’m always looking for new, quality Bonsai blogs to follow. Bonsai Unearthed is a new blog just started by Owen Reich. When I say new, it started on 22nd May and I only found it today Owen has been kind enough to leave constructive comments here on my blog and even let me use some of his wonderful photos from Japan.
This is a link to his fist post, and if this is anything to go by, we are in for a treat. and I don’t just say that because I got a mention
Make sure you check out his other newer posts as well. I have been rather presumptuous and have added him to my bonsai friends links on my side bar. Bonsai is not just about wee trees, it’s about friendship, for me at any rate.
A few more from Owen. These were taken at Mansei-en in Omiya, Japan. Some very famous bonsai
It’s great that Owen is liberal with the photos and information he is getting in Japan, as he says, ‘it’s all in a good cause’. Bonsai friendship plays a big part too, just as when Harry offered his photos from Noelanders Trophy back in January. The same goes for me, if anyone wants to use my images for pleasure or educational purposes, I’m happy to oblige. I just don’t want to see them appear on ebay being use to advertise bonsai seeds for commercial gain!!
More photos from Owen taken on his visit to a Traditional Japanese Restaurant and Tea House where many Ume or Japanese Flowering Plum were on display. I have a real soft spot for flowering bonsai and this is just special. Food looks great too, Yumie
