I have always harboured a big love for bonsai trees. I just adore them! The tinyness.. the power of a huge tree in a little bowl! How could you not be amazed????
The one thing that was stopping me from owning a ton of them was: (other than the price-tag on the really nice ones) I belive with all my heart, to really appreciate the beauty and message of a bonsai, you HAVE to grow it yourself. For years I have thought about doing just that, but never got up the nerve.
I have read every little bit I could get a hold of about growing and caring for a bonsai. (or so I thought) I don’t know everything, but I know enough to get in trouble…
So imagine my surprise when I found out -today- that lemon trees make great bonsais! My two obsessions put together into one beautiful project!!!! I adore Lemon trees and had three when I lived in Germany. I have tried to grow my own from a seed I got in a lemon I ate (I do eat them as other people eat oranges. and yes I know it will take several years for them to bear fruit as I have read, but that was ok with me)
Anyway, I did get a little plant! WOOT WOOT! I am so in love with it already! It’s in it’s first year and already has one of those pretty, shiny, green lemon leaves! Aaaawwwwww my little guy:
So how can I not try this? I ask you!
I have a little bonsai pot! I got it in a free pile! And on top of it all: It’s BLUE! Only my favourite colour!!!!
Do you think the Universe is trying to tell me something? 🙂
I will try this! (I will also germinate more seeds, just in case LOL)
I keep you posted over the next few decades! ;D
