Pictures from the National Arboretum


One of John Naka’s California juniper. It looks a bit unkempt and could use some more dignified styling, in my opinion. But great deadwood and it’s always good to see a tree from the old master. Thank you John!

I’m moving about an hour or so west of DC in Fauquier county. I have a contract on some rural propery near Upperville. Beautiful area. I’d love to make contact with some other bonsai folks in the area.

Nice! There's quite a few BNut members here in the DMV area.

Get ready for them taxes.....coming from a no state tax state! VA even has a yearly property tax on personal vehicles.
When will you actually move? I want to own one of your tree. Are you going to let some go?
Next May - I’ve sold/traded a few already and I may move a few more. Some hard decisions to make between now and then though.

Here it was three years ago in April:
