    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...

    Well, my japanese maple had a rough time from the transition from greenhouse to outdoors but it seems to have stabilized. I did put a sign on it saying it was'nt a pot plant and I told my landlord about it when he was over. Turns out, my landlord is pot friendly anyway so...

    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.

    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...

    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...

    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...

    Love trees. If you have never hugged a tree - try it sometime - really hug. Give it a few minutes. You'll feel good afterwards.
