The Beehive, newest trend in Bonsai

The very latest in Spring Bonsai fashion seems to be the 'Beehive' shape, I've noticed this fresh look coming forward all over Beacon Hill this spring.

Don't Make Me Go Medieval

I hate to drift away from my normal bonsai focus, but this house a few blocks south west of Jefferson Park seemed worthy of mentioning. I'm not sure where all of the treasures come from that adorn this mini-castle, but it looks as if someone has been plundering medieval palaces and displaying their hoard of loot right here on Beacon Hill.
The good news is that they still have a large pile of stone on the side of the house waiting for their next project. If I got to vote I would say that this place needs a catapult or maybe even a dungeon.
I wouldn't want to be the unwanted door to door salesman to come to this house, you might get hot oil poured on you from the ramparts.
