If you could have just one bonsai, which would it be? I guess that's another way of asking what's your most favorite bonsai? I cannot completely explain it, but my attraction to deciduous trees grows more with the passing of time. I love Maple, Elm, but for while now I really love Hackberry. So much eye candy at this website, but I wish they'd continue update the gallery. http://www.sidiao.com/index_e.htm It's amazing to me how the variation in character each Hackberry tree has and strong feelings they evoke. It's like listening to the different movements of Beethoven's Pathétique sonata. Recently this is the one Hackberry I wish I could have or one like it. I wish to develop one of mine own to have character like this one screenshot below.
