    Exquisitely done… giving something we all take for granted such a elusive quality. . I so like the Japanese Maple and am always struck by their beauty and, in particular, when the light catches those leaves in a certain way. This is so beautifully done in every way… even the truck and the little bit of grass from which it all rises… Total fave, Christine.

  • Thank you, Kat. The Arboretum has a gorgeous new bonsai exhibit, we thoroughly enjoyed the display. I’m glad you like this, I was afraid the texture may have overpowered the delicate leaves.
