This image of a penjing at the present WBFF convention in China impressed me deeply. Look at the first image and see a great landscape. How about having this as bonsai? Impossible? Look at the second one. This could be the future of bonsai when the Chinese will be getting serious.
I have to apologize to bill Valavanis for using his image. I found it on Facebook where this and similar ones are floating around dozens of times without mentioning a source. I only found out after using it here that the original came form the blog of Bill Valavanis. Bill wrote several great articles about his adventures in China: http://valavanisbonsaiblog.com/]

Euonymus, burning bush, Euonymus europea, nursery grown, first image 2010, after the radical cut one year ago the tree already looks fine again. Pot by Derek Aspinall / glazing by WP. Pot is not quite as red as on the images, color will look spectacular with red fall leaves.
