Happy New Year, Orlando Bonsai friends and customers!  2012, really?  Your bonsai are one year older and, hopefully, a little closer to perfection.  Just like our trees change and evolve, so does Orlando Bonsai.  First, we want to thank our customers and visitors for a really great 2011 for without you, we just take up cyberspace.  Second, you’ll see a new name and face around Orlando Bonsai.  Hint:  see author of this post.  We plan to keep the great traditions and customer service that Paul has provided and will add some of our own.  Look for my bio and some new products in the near future.  Paul plans to focus on other areas of his bonsai adventure so check out the Epcot International Flower and Garden Show this year and mixed in with all those hidden Mickeys you may find a hidden Paul Pikel helping bonsai artists display their awesome trees.  We’d like to take a moment to thank our suppliers, especially Joshua Roth and Arbortech, for continuing to provide great product and support. Thanks again, Orlando Bonsai friends and customers - please visit often in 2012!
