Bonsai Expo at Duke Gardens

Over the weekend, we went to the Triangle Bonsai Society’s Expo at the Sarah P. Duke Gardens at Duke University.

I’ve always loved the living art of Bonsai, a beautifully grown and trimmed tree or shrub in perfect miniature.

There were Pines, Junipers, Ficus and even Azaleas.

One gentleman even had a rock mounted to resemble a miniature mountain range.

I really enjoyed the afternoon admiring and learning about these small masterpieces.

Have you ever attended a Bonsai event or have grown a Bonsai tree yourself? I’d love to hear about it.
