Holding the Bonsai

Things that hold other things is this week’s photo challenge prompt.  I like the potential for playfulness and it made me think of a photo from one of my favorite places, the Denver Botanic Gardens.

There is a bonsai tree there that looks like it’s just about to fall out of its container.  It reaches out, out, out across the water and it looks so precarious.  And yet, every time I visit, the bonsai remains securely attached to its lovely gray base.  It’s one of my favorite things to see each time we go.

    That is awesome to see a tree living a small container. Is this your tree?
