Part 3 of the national bonsai and penjing museum tropicals

Please excuse all of the shadows on the pictures but there was no way to avoid it. Even though they had a few different species of bonsai I mainly focused on ficus microcarpa. I want to remind you that it would take two people to carry these Bonsai,  they look small in the pictures but they're actually pretty big.

This first Bonsai had a really great looking trunk; it looked like a very old tree almost in the kapok style.

This ficus microcarpa was more like the Banyan style. It had some aerial roots.

What was amazing about this tree was the size of the leaves. They are tiny.

Well that was my adventure at the National Arboretum and National Bonsai and Penjing Museum. It was amazing, it was fantastic, it was great. I wish I had time to go back and see it again. To see so many trees and so many species is very inspiring.
