It’s been 1,728,000 seconds since my last blog post and all I have to say is two things. I’m sorry and I’m so ashamed. Please let me explain, it’s not you it’s me, no seriously. While shutting you out of Bonsology I’ve taken on about ten new projects, all of which are awesome and I can’t wait to share them with you. For the time being I have to hold out because I’m waiting to have it done for you so you can be surprised, even though I know you probably won’t be (click, read, delete). You’re probably thinking why not just write about it as you go along and I completely agree with you. After thinking though I figure it’s better to just finish this project and surprise you with it rather than spoil it and drag it out to an anti-climatic ending.
What I really want to tell you about today is more for my bonsai readers. My bestie’s parents have some dwarf trees along the side of their drive way that are slowly dying and they mentioned a while back that they want to rip them out and throw them away. After peeling myself off the floor with angina, I pleaded easily with his mother to let me have them. She is glad to get rid of them as they are an eye sore for her but potential bonsai’s for me. This I believe is going to be my introduction to Yamadori. One of my readers who also write his blog “Alaska Bonsai – For the hardier Bonsai enthusiast.” requested I post some pictures of them as I was asking him for advice. If you are reading this I hope that you are as excited as I am because these little trees really do look like they have so much potential.
The species I have yet to determine so if anyone can identify them please let me know. I’ll most likely transplant them in the spring of next year, if I transplant them now they will never survive and amount enough energy for dormancy for what looks to be a long and very cold Alberta winter.
Not to bad hey?! SO Bonsologists, if you have any tips and advice I would love love love to hear what you think. I’ll keep you posted with a progression series and I will also be posting and showing you why I haven’t posted anything for a decade or so…
