One identify that involves thoughts in any listing of nice creators of bonsai is David Benevente. Years in the past David labored at Luis Vallejo’s Bonsai Museum and has since run his personal backyard outdoors of Madrid, Spain.

An attention-grabbing show space, the yellow stucco wall a wonderful mix of Japanese and Spanish sensibilities.
