The Bonsai in Longwood Gardens...

I have never shared images of the amazing 
Bonsai Trees in Longwood Gardens.
It is a large and quite beautiful display.
Each tree is identified and the date of its origination is noted!

Japanese Zelkova...Training began 1909

Hinoki False Cypress...Training began 1930

Pomegranate...Training began 1960

Ginko...Training began 1909

Trident Maple...Training began 1990

Crape - Myrtle...Training began 1944

Crape - Myrtle...Training began 1944

Bald Cypress...Training began 1988

 Loose-Flower Hornbeam...Training began 1991

Azalea...Training began 1970

And just to add a little color to this post...
here are a few additional images that did not make the cut 
on the original post I shared here, back on May 20th.




And here we are Gail, I was thrilled that you "missed us" in my last post!

  15. The bonsai are beautiful. I see two of them were started the year before I was born, I sometimes feel like I am on the way to being as twisted as them too. Love the bright, cheerful colours in the flowers, too. The bougainvillea is stunning.
