Syringa palibin achieves perfection.
This little tree has been waiting for its chance– this is the “year of the lilac” in my book! never have they been so lovely! and my little bonsai specimens have thrived in a cool spring, producing fragrant blooms that fill the garden with their sweet perfume. When I started creating bonsai from garden shrubs, this is what I dreamed of achieving– so proud of myself! Hand built pottery by Portland artist Sherri Aytche.
