My Mum has been growing bonsai trees for the past twenty years. Here are some of her best ones. I'm not sure what most of them are except the last one which is a Tasmanian Myrtle. To give you some idea of the art involved in bonsai, this is a tree that typically grows up to 55 m ( 170 ft) tall. After twenty years this one is only about a foot and a half tall.

The third one - some sort of pine - is my favourite.
