Flower Mandalas

American Beech Bonsai, U.S. National Arboretum
I seem to be moving away from writing and more toward imaging, and toward imaging beyond the flower mandala series. So I’m posting occasional images from my other nature series. This is the first of a sequence of images of Bonsai trees. I’d be very interested in hearing from people who raise and maintain these trees. Some of the examples at the U.S. National Arboretum, which I visited last month as many of these trees were just blooming, were hundreds of years old. My own personal attempt at keeping a Bonsai tree going lasted only about a year, so I’m impressed!
Here’s a link to a site that gives what appears to be a good, brief history of bonsai trees:
