Sentinel Trees

Welcome to Sentinel Trees, an exhibition of miniature art works from 13 artists and 9 authors. 
We are excited and pleased to be part of the Urban Tree Festival 2020.

Artist Lisa Jennings Writer: Dean Reddick

Am I a witch in the hazel
The musky may with vicious thorn
Do my smooth beech limbs remind you of her

Come in and see if it's true

I'm not the maiden in a gingko temple
Or a holy saint hid in ancient yew
I shun the pomp of sequestered wellington

Come in and see if it's true

About the Bonsai

This indoor bonsai belongs to the artist and is a Fig tree (not the edible Fig type).
Figs or Ficus make good indoor bonsai's as they are tropical plants from south east Asia and can manage high temperatures and relatively low light levels. Ficus trees produce a milky looking latex sap when cut.
