If you missed this, you'll appreciate this production from the CBS Morning Show. All hail John Naka the father of Bonsai in the States, and every bonsai artist who openly shares their knowledge and art freely with others.
"They are important to me, I care. I care..."
"Transforming a small tree, can transform your life."
"It's trees yes, but the beauty of it, is art."
"Bonsai is an artistic representation of nature, in miniature."
"They are not special trees; any plant with a woody trunk can be a bonsai. Bonsai is the technique applied to the tree."
