The cafe bonsai in sanur beach, in the island of bali, is the centre for bonsai, with a collection of over 1000 trees! this wonderfull space is the work of bonsai masters Wayan Jelantik Yana and Made Suadnyana. the Pemphis Acidula is everywhere, as it is the most apropriate local species for bonsai training, together with some ficus varieties, a lonely pinus casuarina and various tropical trees and shrubs, some with great flowers. did so many pictures here that it will take time to post them all....:)
metrosideros robusta, the NZ christmas tree, very widely planted nowadays in portugal ( to all the readers from porto, just think about the beauties that stand in Foz, just before you get to castelo do queijo)
this pohutukawa (metrosideros excelsea) is growing with its roots over a rock wich stands at 2.5 meters high. one of the best trees i´ve seen for bonsai inspiration, the pohutukawa grows on sea sides and cliffs, and gets to be really huge with the most beautifull nebary and branch systems.
