    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...

    I have had a bonsai tree

    for a few years; but recently I decided I would actually turn this into a hobby... WOW I learned so much, almost immediately upon making that decision. Did you know that you can CARVE these trees? It adds to the artistry of them! Plus, you use wire, to help promote the trees...

    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.

    Wish I Knew How To Grow One
