    Wish I Knew How To Grow One

    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...

    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...
