Its rare in my experience that I get the opportunity to visit the garden of a fellow bonsai enthusiast. This week was an exception as Sauro, a friend from Glasgow, invited me over to see his extensive collection of trees and pots. Sauro, like myself, has a passion for smaller trees. Here are a few photographs of some of the trees that caught my attention. Apologies for the quality of some pictures, this was due to the strong evening sunlight.

An overview of the garden
Shohin white pine with a lichen covered trunk
Twisted trunk scots pine, these are a speciality of Sauro.
Cork bark black pine
This larger semi cascade scots pine was styled over the winter by Bjorn Bjorholm, no less
Sauro’s dog Max, a poodle with attitude.
Many thanks to Sauro for a terrific evening and to Margaret for a lovely meal.
