I saw a very effective example of "driftwood planting" in Versailles, in June. My photo is not so good, but Dorothy managed to improve the quality (see below).

More pics of the EDG convention in Versailles :

Alain, thanks for the photo.

The Versailles planting is obviously planted on the driftwood where as, my planting left you guessing.

Peter.

That's true, Peter.

A similar technique for two different impressions. Both of you probably had no idea that someone else, in a remote country (if not exotic, for the south of France is quite exotic for those like me who live in the middle of the "hexagon") had the same inspiration

Still, it is not a very common form used in bonsai, and there is probably no japanese word for it (yet?... ;) ).

It just goes to show that with skill and art, bonsai is not a finished, mummified form of art...

Doesn't that make you feel on top of the world ?
