Trees/ Bonsai

Posted on

According to Japanese tradition, the bonsai represents the three virtues or shin-zen-bi, which translates into truth, goodness and beauty.

Bonsai trees symbolize harmony, honor, patience and happiness. They are the perfect addition to a relaxing environment.

Many people associate bonsai trees with inner peace, serenity and contentment, and while its true that most of the people who successfully rear bonsais have these qualities they are earned over time.

Birds have wings; they’re free; they can fly where they want when they want. They have the kind of mobility many people envy.

Roger Tory Peterson




The butterfly doesn’t know how long he has to live, but that doesn’t stop him from spreading his wings and his joy.
