Picture by Jason Schley. Used with permission.
This juniper bonsai was stolen from Jason Schley, of Schley's Bonsai in Deland, Florida. The theft occurred sometime within the last week; if I infer correctly, Jason was away and returned to find it missing.

The tree is a Juniperus procumbens nana, also known as "Japanese garden juniper." It stands 9 inches tall (about 23 cm.) The Japanese-made pot is signed with the potter's chop mark.

This, I understand, was one of Jason's first trees (if not the first,) and means a lot to him for several reasons. It was a gift from his mentor, for one thing. On top of that are the time and work that Jason, and his mentor before him, put into bringing it to the point at which it is now.

If you should see this bonsai, or learn anything about it, please contact Schley's Bonsai, or the authorities.
