A Study in Bonsai
Posted by joeabbott on November 4, 2012
One of the places we took Fred and Laurel on their trip out here was the (get ready for this name): Pacific Rim Bonsai Collection at the Rhododendron Species Botanical Gardens in Federal Way, WA.
It may sound ostentatious but it’s extremely approachable: a small area defines bonsai and its different forms, an indoor area shows a few examples, and then a walking tour takes you past dozens of exhibits, all within touching reach (but, please, don’t touch!).
It was a nice way to get them off their plane and into the Seattle rhythm of enjoying nature on a cloudy day.
