Autumn is my favorite time of the year at the Museum. Growing up in Southern California didn’t offer the dramatic change from summer to fall that occurs here on the East Coast.
For me, seeing the bonsai in their fall color is a reward for a job well done.When a bonsai looks great in the fall it means that it was well cared for during the long hot days of summer. So grab your scarf and join me for a tour of our Autumn Bonsai Exhibit.
