Bonsais, masterpieces of both nature and man's hands, have reached a high degree of perfection. It combines the balance of volumes and compositional lines, the harmony of shapes, and the play of lights and colours.
The view is enraptured when contemplating these small trees carefully: It glides through the leaves, the branches, and the bark, and it delves into the recesses and stops at the buds. Because, although miniaturised, a bonsai is a real tree in all respects, and like the other trees, it follows the seasonal cycles and, when the time comes, is covered with a green colour, flowers, and even fruit.
The art of gardening, aesthetic sense, philosophical principles, lifestyle, exchange between cultures, passion for nature and gardening etc. come together in so many wonderful plants like those that fill these pages.
