    My Bonsai Tree Got Sick.

    I had a bonsai tree, but while I was going through culinary school I was a full time student and working a full time job at the airport.  All while running off of 2-4 hours of sleep a night for over a year.  Saddly my 10-15 minutes a day with it turned to...

    My Tree Looks Like A Pot Plant

    I hav'nt had much luck with bonsai. Usually something happens and I move or I become emotionally distrought and end up forgetting to take care of the tree. I keep trying though. I have a willow that seems to have gone dormant. I think it's still alive, it's flexible. I'm going to...

    I Have Two

    They haven't died yet! Yay for me. One is a little dwarf pomegranate plant, one is a little jasmine one. I got them from a bonsai vendor, hopefully they still count. I haven't named them... Part of me thinks I should.

    Mini-bodhi

    The Sellout

      I think I know what it’s like to sell your own children. This weekend I was forced by straitened circumstances to part with three little trees I loved far more than the paltry sums of money I got for them. The buyers were very nice. They could see and feel how...

    Wish I Knew How To Grow One

    I don't know much about Bonsais, but they are cute.  Seems like a lot of effort goes into them, even more so that the plants im growing now.  I just don't have the time honestly.  Would have to learn, and act accordingly in response with the tree.  Maybe...

    Thief In The Night

      There was a stranger in my garden last Thursday night, late. There were two ways of looking at the result, of course. I could have considered my tiny garden violated, my personal property stolen, my sense of security destroyed. I could have cursed the thief and lamented...
