...on the way home from PCB today. From the road it looked like a typical tourist trap which seemed to sell cheap plants to passer byers. We were quite pleased to see their nice collection of various plant variations formed into traditional bonsai presentations. I've always been fascinated by the art/craft of bonsai and have a large collection of empty containers which used to hold live bonsai trees, until my green thumb got a hold of them anyway. Here are some pics of some of the best displays, her oldest was over 105 years old, several were for sale for the bargain price of over $2500 with the most expensive almost $3000.

I am determined to keep my new one alive this time.

Those are gorgeous! I'm terrible with bonsai. I tried a couple of times but I seem to love them to death...lol.

I think we bought at the same place, and they sold us lemons.
