There are so many lovely shohin in this thread. Beautiful Steven. :beer:
The current competition has got me more interested in shohin. :)

I wonder if its a common progression from large bonsai to shohin bonsai. It is definitely a lot harder.
Though I'm still fascinated by large gums and large casuarina bonsai.

I'll second that, twisted trunk privet and quince are very nice. Hard to find Chojubai in Australia let alone an interesting little specimen like that!

I really enjoy some of the pot choices you have made with your trees here to Steven, there is certainly a great array of shohin pot styles and colours available and good to see them being used so well. I look forward to seeing these trees mature! :yes:

The black pine and crabapple on page 1 and the willow leaf on page 2 also are great trees. Do you have a photo of the shinpaku on the top of your display stand in the last photo?

Saotome is off the richter!
One of the fabulous things about growing bonsai is as you get old and decrepit your trees get old and beautiful
