I like to call this bonsai effect 'The Wave', it is essentially when someone converts their entire yard into a sea of bonsai. Not only is it something to marvel as is the above pictured bonsai mass located on the west central side of Beacon Hill, but think about how hard it must be to maintain. How do you get to that center part? I would like to do a time lapse video of this yard that lasted for years, I bet that it would look like a shifting sea.

Please keep in mind as you read this that I am always actively looking for funky Bonsai and I'm walking around Beacon Hill constantly. That is why this one took me completely by surprise. I must have walked by this very house on the corner of 18th and Horton dozens of times and I never even noticed this crazy mountain village sculpture right out in someone's front yard. The thing must be about 6 feet tall and covered with little plastic houses/temples/people/cars/fake snow etc. How could I have missed this amazing gem? If you are walking on North Beacon Hill this one is one that you would not want to miss.
