most of these bc came from the estate of a guy who spent 20-plus years focusing on bonsai

Hi Don - I think Seth said it best when he said "Wow!"  ;D

Absolutely fantastic collection of BC.  Not that I'm an expert or anything, but I imagine that you must have one of the nicest BC collections in the country.  Maybe this will inspire more use of the species.  Thanks very much for sharing.

Its doing fine.  Just needs some time for the bark color to even out.  The cats left it alone this season.  Hope all is well with you Judy.
