    If you have bonsai trees I would love to see pics. I have a ton of pre bonsai and this spring I want to turn them into something. I'm thinking about rock plantings or forests but I need some ideas.
    Thanks in advance, Jim

    Very cool hobby...I tried once but they're far too delicate for me. [​IMG]

    I can't do the itty bitty trees. I did a larger Japanese Maple once and it turned out good, then the house was sold....

    Now I'm getting ready to work on a Japanese Maple sapling in front of the new house. I left it be last year to grow in, since we've been fighting a drought. But in a few weeks I'm going to begin shaping it up!
