Gee, it looks like a serious case of bougainvillea overdose. I hope you can sell them at a decent price. Hawaii seems like a small market for bonsai.

I am stumped.:)

thanks wood.
lots of quality material to practice carving and styling on. the experience is invaluable. in just a short while we are going to have some amazing trees.

considering how isolated we are, the interest has been surprising

Me thinks you have reached the top and have leaped over the other side...... Sometimes there really is such a thing as too much of a good thing................

The stumps are fantastic! Good luck finding good homes for them. Your lawn is very nice too!:)

thanks, si. we're sharing these with others on a limited basis-preferring to retain the majority for development. this was a once in a lifetime collection opportunity, so we need to be mindful of that in our disposal plan.

best wishes, sam
