BONSAI HELL Graphic Update
Here's the lineup of my bonsai for this year. Far right is the maple and next to it the boxwood. They survived the winter. Far left is a new ficus training in cascade style. Next to is is a juniper, same pot and variety as last year, replacing the one that died. I'm afraid my previous report of its survival was incorrect. To the right of the juniper is a new azalea. My teacher's maple, not pictured here but featured in the BONSAI HELL post, has survived as well. My other maple, the little scrawny one, did not make it. Bonsai can be started from stock you find at any nursery or hardware store. It's the upkeep that's tricky.
