It’s that time of year again! Bring out the bunting, shine up the seats, and fire up the grills, because it’s time for Opening Day 2015–the day of the year when children of all ages drift on down to their local ballparks to celebrate the start of baseball season.

Celebrate the Japanese art form of bonsai at the 58th Annual Bonsai Show in San Marino. The event features more than 100 specimens created by bonsai masters. Bonsai is different from similar practices because it grows small trees from regular stock and seeds, and uses cultivation techniques (pruning, root reduction, potting, etc.) to produce the small trees that mimic the full-size trees.
