In May of last year, we went to Japan. It was an amazing experience – I could write a hundred posts detailing how incredible the experience was (but I’ll spare you).
During one of our exploration days out of Tokyo, Caitie indulged me and hopped on the train out to Omiya, which is a town that hosts several Bonsai nurseries, and even a Bonsai Museum. Even though it was blisteringly hot, we managed to check out some amazing 100+ year old trees…in pots
Now, I’ve had a weird fascination with bonsai for a long time. Going to Omiya was like making a small pilgrimage in a way…Now here we are in the Bahamas, and as I was strolling around the bluffs at White Point, I saw tons of wind-swept/weathered trees that reminded me of our visit to Omiya last year.
Caitie will laugh, but here is my inspiration.
