Comments: Winter has come early to the Black Hills this year, but maybe fall will come back for at least a little while. One nice thing about winter is that the long nights leave time for doing things that don't get done in summer; reading, writing, even wiring trees!

Stolen Bonsai! On August 16th 2019 someone took 7 large bonsai from the widow of my friend Takuzo, who lives near Minneapolis. They also took trees from other locations nearby. Several of the trees are pictured above. If you see them for sale somewhere, or in someones collection, let us know so we can get them back!
