Ben Oki

Rest In Peace, Ben Oki. I was fortunate enough to spend a day with him almost 13 years ago.

This was a demo on a yew. Notice the clock behind him as he made very quick work of this tree; he started at 9:00 AM!

During the workshop, he helped set the initial design on this azalea, and it has been known as my Ben Oki Azalea ever since.
