We took this picture of a ficus (balete) tree on January 16, 2016, during a visit to a farm in Laguna. We were really impressed by its profuse red berries.
It came to our mind, that if grown in the garden, it should attract a lot of birds. Very good for bird watchers.
Another idea came to mind. Ficus is usually made into bonsai. If somebody could do it, he can fashion a prize-winning fruiting bonsai. That would really be something. It could be a formal style with lots of berries on all its branches. Of course, it could be any other style. Cascading, windswept, etc.
