It was struck,albeit softly,earlier by the preponderance of Bonsai Pines online that look like Pines that have been Bonsaied.

Pines that have been styled to look like a Pine from a book or perhaps a Pine,ahem,in nature.

Or a Pine from nature styled to look like a Bonsai,or a Pine styled simply to look crooked and old.

What could we expect of Pines encouraged to look like they have broken free of these moulds?

I was thinking of Pine styles that may have been lost to history due to the starvation of a village or a conflict of some kind,even a fire that ravaged a Shrine where something like the seven secret styles of fighting pines were kept from general view.

Styles from the mists of time.

I considered experiments in shaping Pines to reflect different emotions,emotions externalised so to ponder.

As i considered this it occured to me that just as real as those seven lost styles of fighting Pine were the Pines styled to liberate money from happy customers.

I moved on from there,what about Pines styled to look like a fantastical tree of a science fiction book cover?

Why limit it to pines?

Enjoy this even tho it is written in a dead language. They have produced way more trees, but only posted them on French forums.

I remember driving along a highway somewhere with my ex gf, she pipes up, WOW I can't believe how the trees here look like your bonsai.

I didn't know what to say, finaly I left it at Thank You. I didn't make sense to go any further.:D

Actually, now that I think of it... one of the guys was sometimes active on BT.

Rick, les forums francophones sont pareils pour les guerres de personalités :D

Hmmm,in the movie version of Something wicked this way comes we never got to see Will and Jim admiring the Bonsai exhibits of Mr Dark.

I read the book but the movie sticks in my mind.
