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. Especially deciduous trees show these changes; in the color of their leaves and by growing fruits or flowers. In this post we show Bonsai in their spring and summer colors.

Bonsai artist Luis Vallejo (from Spain) agreed to do a series with Bonsai Empire; the seasons of Bonsai. This second edition shows the spring and summer. Enjoy these amazing photos!
