"The legacy of bonsai is one of the most sacred facets of this art form. The spirit of each person who has stewarded a tree lives on as the tree is passed to the next generation. Mike Blanton owned, loved, and cared for this Rocky Mountain Juniper until he passed away in 2013. He named it Eagle’s Landing, and because of this legacy, this bond that transcends time, he lives on." - Ryan Neil
