Dec 3rd, 2018 : Bonsai

When I heard Bonsai I always pictured a miniature Evergreen of some variety but there’s more types.
I have never seen one of these Maple Tree Bonsais.



Bonsai is a long term project. They take years, sometimes lasting generations.
I decided to buy one for my mother’s room in the nursing home figuring it would be easy to care for, just a shot of water once in
awhile and snip any unwanted growth.



I found one that wasn’t a tree but some sort of plant that had been trained to the shape of one.
It probably wouldn’t live as long but she was already 91.



She was thrilled and told me one of her friends belonged to the Bonsai Society.



But when I came back 2 months later she proudly showed me a bunch of new shoots.
Didn’t have a clue.

That White Pine with the $160k tag, I don’t think he wanted to part with it.

I had a cute little bonsai tree for several years. Then at some point it got this weird fungal infection on its branches (white powdery spots that you could scrape off, but always came back) and died.
