ANN ARBOR – When I was a kid, I was obsessed with bonsai trees.

Turns out, there's a whole society here dedicated to the art form that was created in Japan more than 1,000 years ago, and every year for almost a half century it's been putting on the Ann Arbor Bonsai Society Show & Sale at Matthaei Botanical Gardens.

Not only will 100 different bonsai trees be on display, but there will be a kids' bonsai class and trees will be for sale for you to take home and marvel for years to come at their tiny size.
