This Japanese Wisteria bonsai tree was in bloom at the Chicago Botanic Garden when I went there on May 3, 2010.
This is what it looked like on April 29, 2010, 3 days earlier.
I didn't expect to see it blooming, but I got lucky when my husband agreed to go with me on May 3, 2010. I love it!
The Chicago Botanic Garden has one of the largest public collections of Bonsai trees in the United States. They have over 180 trees, and they rotate displaying the trees outside, featuring the trees when they are the most beautiful. I guess I will have to go back in fall! They had probably more then 25 trees displayed outside on the days I was there.
