Bonsai at The Morikami Museum and Japanese Gardens

Have you ever visited a Bonsai exhibit? When we were at The Morikami Musuem and Japanese Gardens on Friday evening, we spent some time at the Bonsai exhibit. It is always fun to see miniatures trees that are up to 400 years old. I have to admit, they are very captivating to me – the thought that someone has loved each and every one of these trees and spent countless hours training and pruning them is fantastic.

I could spend an entire afternoon, just imagining the tiny people who could live there.
