My wife, Pam, and I have been in bonsai since the late '70s. Living in the hinterlands we had no resident master to teach us. Over the years we would personally work with masters who were visiting our club. The extended private instruction worked out very well. We were able to learn from John Naka, Toshio Saburomaru, Ben Oki, Chase Rosade, Dan Robinson, and many of the other great names.
We started to collect ponderosa pines early on and went on doing so for 20 years until the old knees went out. We had some wonderful old trees as a result. We did the same for white cedar and larch. Along the way we ended up with many other collected varieties.
As things grew, people wanted to see our collection. We ended up on HGTV twice, Discovery Channel, PBS, plus several books and magazines. We made a bonsai how-to video for the American Garden Club. We opened our garden for charitable events; groups like the Children's Cancer Fund, Victims of Torture, and other social causes. It's always rewarding to do so. We had to come up with a descriptive name, since we lived in White Bear Lake, Minnesota, the obvious choice was White Bear Bonsai Garden. The name stuck even after we moved to North Carolina.
We don't really want to part with our art, but, we've reached that time of life when unlike fine wine I don't get better with age (I'm more like cabbage). Naturally, we'll keep our favorites, but, the bulk has to go. We miss the visitors to our garden, too.

A note about photos - the appearance of the actual tree may differ slightly from the photo because of minor changes due to normal growth. We take new pictures when there is a substantial change in appearance rather than every time we pinch or prune. The date of the most recent picture is shown in the description.
