    I've always respected the culture of patience associated with bonsai.

    There is something truly majestical about a Bonsai. My grandparents had a 8ft bonsai in their japanese themed back yard. It went along with the rock garden and koi pond. I will always admire it and be thankful that it will maintain in my families control.

    updated this gallery from the permanent display of the NC Arboretum http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.796617445317.2363105.22603655&type=1&l=64b991cf66

    About 20 pics added, a few choice ones:

    "Appalachian Cove" can give the full breakdown of plants if you want. Note the unusual pot. They wood has a special history. Unfortunately I've forgotten it. When they re-pot it it takes three men to "very very carefully do it" after many pictures.

    Went to a nursery outside of atlana it was a good trip. Picked up a couple trees and I jus planted this mame. Cork for scale. When planting I forgot to pay attention to the pot design. Didn't align "the front" with the coolest part. This is temporary.

    Close to 1000 jumipers. I walked to this part and said I'm overwhelmed didn't even bother looking at them individually.
