    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 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.
