Very impressive gallery Candy. I really like the Celtis sinensis, it is quite inspiring, thanks for allowing these wonderful bonsai to be posted.

I would never take anything away from Mr. Nick Lenz or Mr. Kenji Miyata as I greatly admire both, but in the context of your gallery I felt that the two trees that were yours, the Celtis sinensis and the Quercus suber stood out from the rest as my favorite out of all pictured.
Thank you for showing your trees. I have neither the experience nor jargon to try and explain why those two trees stood out more, but they spoke something to me. So I will just leave it at that.
After those two, my 3rd favorite would have to be the maple forest styled by Sensei Miyata. All in all, a very wonderful gallery.

So that' s where those ended up. . . thanks for showing them Candy.
what doesn't show here is the scale - that Celtis is quite a large tree, the nebari is near 12" if I recall. What are your thoughts for the future of this one Candy?
(in person the hollow still reminded me of those Muppet aliens though! )

My top three favorites are the Celtis, the Quercus and the Maple forest.
The hackberry evokes a sense of mystery, it reminds me of a powerful old tree from the enchanted forest of the fairytales. It is full of surprises, there is nothing predictable about it. I've found that the trees that impress me the most are those the least predictable. Those that gives you something new with every little detail. Not unlike the stories or movies I enjoy the most. Predictable stories are boring.
The cork oak has a lot of charm and elegance. Somehow that charm contrasts very well with the rugged skin.
The maple forest is attractive in its simplicity and modesty. It invites me to contemplate in its shade.
Most exquisite gallery.
