bonsai garden

22 January 2012

My mother-in-law has the cutest bonsai collection. These photos remind me of the trees I saw on the Columbia Icefield in the Canadian Rockies. They are only a couple of metres tall yet something like a hundred years old. In that cold, harsh climate, they grow only a couple of centimetres a year. They were so cute. Yes, the words “bonsai” and “cute” just go together well, don’t they? I also think there are “cute” little magical creatures that live in those “cute” miniature forests and secret gardens.

    I am swooning over the shallow blue one in the first and second shot – love a little bonsai forest – so beautiful.

    I love bonsai trees! I’ve always heard they are hard to care for. Is that true? They are just too adorable. I would probably manage to kill one seeing how I can’t keep the simplest plant alive. I try. I talk to them and everything! Beautiful pics….Hope you have a great week. ( :

    hello, friend! i think the plants are beautiful. although i garden; anything household or inside dies on me. your mother in law has a talent.
