Those are fantastic. I love Bonsai. I remember getting one as a gift years ago but I am horrible with plants and it ended up dieing

Oh!!! Somehow we have a similar neighbourhood. Don't tell me you are living next door to me.

There's an Edward Scissorhands in your neighborhood?
Sometimes a bonzai approach is all you can do with the growth of some bushes.

What a well trimmed Bonzai! I love how they grown neatly against the plain white wall, so neat!

It's pretty amazing at the shapes people can prune their plants into. It looks like a bonsai artist lives there!

I've recently discovered that I really like those little Bonsai trees. I always did, but I never noticed before. Kind of weird.

Wow.I have never seen such a big bonsai before.

Silvergirl said...

Campbell Jane said...

Great photos! What a blessing to live in a neighborhood with such a tidy well tended garden!

Are bonsai hard to grow/ take care?

Growing up...my Grandparents lived in a primarily Japanese neighborhood, so I've seen those most of my life and I can tell if they have a Japanese gardener, by how the shrubs are cut and how precise it is trimmed. Thank you for sharing this...it really warmed my heart.

Amazing shots!
I love the different shape of Bonsai.
I super love the first two. They are so soothing and pleasing to me.
Just love them:)

It's good to see these topiary while walking. Lucky you to have a nice neighborhood. It takes some investments to maintain topiary plants.

I love the little tiny bonsais that fit into little tiny plates that you can actually fit into your pocket! Have you seen those before?? :)
