President's Message

Summer deepens and high temperatures continue to stress our trees, water them and protect them from the direct intense summer sun. We at the Living Art Bonsai Society have an amazing resource that is I am sure, not unique to our group. During the warm weather months, one Saturday a month we gather at a local meeting place to participate in a work session. Both newer and experienced  members attend these sessions. Newer members find it to be an excellent source of knowledge. More experienced members bring trees and share constructive criticism and ideas about the next step in attaining the perfect bonsai. The novice finds the resources to be invaluable. The experienced gain confidence and additional experience as they often answer a myriad of questions. All would do well to remember the old adage “it’s better to learn from someone else’s mistakes”.  And we can all attest to that, if you are an experienced Bonsai artist you have made many mistakes and sadly have killed a few innocent trees.

(By the way the perfect Bonsai does not exist, someone somewhere can find something that could improve the tree). It is my firm belief if it looks good to you then it’s a nice tree.

Find a bonsai group, attend meetings, set up work sessions, learn from one another and whisper as we train them “little tree be all you can be”. On our website you will find photos of our recent work session. Enjoy our website as it continues to improve and we add additional information.
