Pacific Rim Bonsai Collection

John's Island recently visited the Pacific Rim Bonsai Collection owned by and located near the world headquarters of Weyerhaeuser Corporation.  Bonsai is a Japanese art form using miniature trees grown in containers. We found the collection to be quite interesting and want to share some photos and information.

The entrance to the Collection is, not surprisingly, in an area with the atmosphere of a forest, just south of Seattle, near Federal Way, Washington.... (Be sure to click on photos for larger view.)

A plaque describes Bonsai....

Before closing this post, a very special "thank you" to our followers who voted on the best photo to represent John's Island (see August 18). We were delighted to get votes on 3 of the 4 photos!

Thanks to all for stopping by John's Island.
