Until you reside in Vermont, or a equally colourful place like Rochester NY, you won’t know that spring colour is nearly as dramatic as full colour. A little bit extra refined for positive, however stunningly stunning however. This beautiful Siegen Japanese maple with scroll and companion is fairly good instance of spring splendor. It belongs to Invoice Valavanis, as does every thing proven on this publish.
Time to go to Invoice Valavanis, one in every of our favorites with regards to all issues bonsai. And once I say all issues bonsai, I imply just about no matter you may think. I received’t point out all of them right here (you are able to do your individual analysis by visiting his web site, his weblog and his FB pages – hyperlinks are offered beneath), however you may get a petty good concept from the photographs.

A yr late (thanks covid) however effectively well worth the wait. Anyway, September will likely be right here ahead of you assume. Time to begin planning!
