Perfection

Hi There

Came across this on Mr Kimura's Facebook page.

I think that if there was the perfect bonsai in representing a tree in miniature then this would have to come pretty close??

Interestingly, if one were to apply the old 'handbook' to this bonsai, it would be missing half of its branches... Bar branches and branches coming straight out from the trunk.

Just goes to show that the true masters of this art only consider those 'rules' to be guidelines, and we shouldn't be so hasty to lop things off just because someone told us it was 'wrong'. Otherwise, trees like this one just wouldn't exist.

Owen you are spot on!

I recently went to Japan for Kokufu Ten. Within a very short time, at nurseries and the first half of the show, I started to see things that I have been taught over 40 years not to do.

Eventually I asked one of the Masters present with another Master nearby about the 'rules'. He said, "You should know the rules, but you don't have to obey the rules."

Good enough for me!

Well said guys
You need to know the “rules “ to know when to break the rules
