Thanks for the link, Lennard.

Lennard thanks for the link, there are some stunning trees there.

For me the real showstopper is #3, Chrysanthemum trained to this level are rare & hard to do, kudos to the artist.

Hi gang, I am looking for a photo posted a few months ago here and I cannot find it again of an extremely large bonsai with a huge buttress. I think it was an olive or ficus. It had a person standing next to the tree for a size comparison. thankx.
