Liz Tried Her Hand at the Art of Bonsai

Since the family is visiting , Erika wanted to see her longtime friend Liz.  We drove out to the country today to see  Liz and her family’s new home and all the hard work they have done (continue to do) to make it spectacular.  During the house tour she shared her attempt at Bonsai.  

She made us smile.  It can’t be easy.

I should have asked her more about it but the little brown growth had a prime spot in a sunny window in the kitchen, even though it had seen better days.

Not sure if she took a workshop or class.

Here ‘s a link to the Brooklyn Botanic article on Bonsai  Small Tree, Big Heart by Julian Velasco



And here is one of the photographs of a Bonsai tree at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden I took in June when I visited my sister.

Probably more what Liz had in mind.  Bonsai means “planted in a tray” and the definition and history is here

  1. I’ve a number of plants around here that look just like Liz’s. I had no idea they were bonsai. When will they start to look like the ones in the article? 🙂

  2. Oops. Bonsai is an interesting art. Mine would probably turn out like Liz’s if I tried.

Thanks for your visit. It's always good to hear you stopped by.
