You obviously enjoy this stone, Tom, and have taken the effort to see it at its best in different seasons. It recalls plantings of Yuji Yoshimura & Marion Gyllenswan, for me. They loved suiseki, bonsai & sharing beauty.

Thank you for the very kind words, Chris. I am honored that you are reminded of the wonderful work of two of the bonsai world's great continuing presences. My first book about bonsai was given to me by my father in his later years (it was his first reference as well when he began his study of bonsai in the 1950's). The book was Mr. Yoshimura's "The Japanese Art of Miniature Trees and Landscapes" (forgive me if I did not recall the title correctly). I still refer to the book often...in fact, the pages are beginning to literally fall away from the binding...I should consider having it rebound in fact. I still take much inspiration from the photographs.

Sorry to ramble...thanks once again. You are right, both of the stones are two of my favorites. Interestingly enough I found them both discarded many years ago. I used to work in conjunction with the Department of Geology at West Virginia University....they were restructuring their department at the time and did away with a lot of material - particularly stones and minerals. I remember thinking that the stones were remarkable...I had no idea what I would end up doing with them at the time but I knew I had to have them.

Best regards,
Tom
