ah my old bonsai
you are gone twenty five years
how must you look now
I ran across an old photo of one of my bonsai from about twenty five years ago, just before I’d sold it or given it away, and wondered what it might look like today, had I kept it and continued it’s development. So, I painted what I surmised and added a fantasy background to it.
