My visit, last year, to Shinpukuji Temple’s Bonsai Museum, was my first time seeing the trees in sunlight. The greens were brighter and the trunks darker than I’d seen before. The trees’ health was obvious. Here are some of the pines and junipers on display the day I visited.
Semi-cascade Japanese black pine
Cork bark black pine
Rough bark white pine
Exposed root white pine
Multi-trunk white pine
This was also the first time I’d seen the deciduous trees in leaf. I’ve previously posted shots of some of these trees in winter – if you’re curious, see “Shinpukuji Temple bonsai museum” from last year. Among my favorites is the hornbeam below.
