Seasonal
Bonsai

Museo Bonsái Luis Vallejo, Madrid

One of the things I like most about Bonsai is the fact that it is a living art. Bonsai trees change over time as well as through the seasons. Fall might just be the most spectacular time to enjoy deciduous bonsai; this is the time when leaves change color, resulting in dramatic appearances of the trees.

Bonsai artist Luis Vallejo (from Spain) agreed to do a series with Bonsai Empire; the seasons of Bonsai. The first edition is the Fall. Enjoy these amazing photos!
