I am about to leave for Japan. My trees are being baby-sat and my camera is charged. I don’t know how often I will be able to post  while away, but even though this trip is not totally bonsai related I should have a whole lot of images to add to this blog and my bonsai in Japan blog when i return.

I will leave you with a picture I took last trip on the island of Miyajima. A red pine growing in what could only be described as the bunjin style.

A red pine growing on top of Mt Misen, Miyajima.

Merry Christmas everyone and see you all sometime in the New year.
