Bonsai; PenJing in Chinese, who were the first. Ancient "wizards" found and potted them, and told people he had shrunk them with his powers. An old, and very fine art. A must see when you have the time to see the magic of nature.

The trees here are amazing. I have never seen bonsai trees done at this level before. So many are very old and complex. It is worth the hour or more walk on gravel paths to see.
