The first photograph is simply a lovely tree; the color is just superb.
Doesn't this one look like a giant bonsai?
I took the above picture because I really wanted the picture below. Having the one above lets me know what the tree is doing all-slantwise sheltering a lovely white rhododendron.
The tree below was put on its side and what became the uppermost branches were wired to the side to form the bonsai you see below. I find myself intrigued by the methods used to create art.
Okay, shadows intrigue me. This is a tile with an abstract design of some "branches" in the middle. Then the shadows of a real tree branch and some pine needles happen to fall just right on the tile.
David and David trying to figure out what to do with a tree. The answer? Bag the tree!
Shadows again - a super plant and its shadow.
Modes of transportation . . .
Finally! Azaleas. . . although not in bonsai form.
Pots and pots and pots and still more POTS!
Do you think I got carried away? Well, you're right, but I will make it up to you with the flowers to follow, okay?
Oops, where'd these pots come from?
I'll make it up to you (again) with some lovely bonsai - including azaleas.
No azaleas here, but I love this photo, a great tree-over-rock with wood grain around it, and the windows with interesting divisions.
A worker's tools . . . .
A wonderful sink . . . .
Weighing pots? Really? Oh well, it's a neat scale.
