Some people are excited about March Madness right now, but I’m excited about warmer March weather & the ability to get out & about to photograph a more colorful environment.

Kewl! So you’re into Bonsai’s too?
Oh, and I’ll probably post my other eclipse photo today or tomorrow. I’m happy with the results for the most part. And to think that I almost dumped them…
I’m not at all into March Madness but I like the prospect of seeing some warm weather shots from you. That Wonderlove shot is lovely. The blooms look so delicate.
Tamra – I love Bonsais!!! I just wish I could practice in the art. That photo is from the Bonsai section at my local botanical garden.
Liz – Thx so much. I think the image is peaceful yet refreshing.
Tamra – A quick update: Thx to Connie Crancer at the Matthaei Botanical Garden, I now know that this particular specimen is about 78 yrs old, collected in the Keys in 1990 (which is recently illegal). Training began in 1992. The habit (twisted-ness) and the deadwood is typical of the species. And The deadwood and live wood are one plant.
Thanks for the info! I wanted to start a few redwoods myself, but turns out those are way more work than I’m willing to put in right now. And, I don’t think I’m ready to start one myself yet anyway–might end up getting hooked (or incredibly frustrated) and lord knows I don’t need that distraction right now.
I have a few indoor trees that seem to be thriving–it’s time to re-pot though.
The place I got mine is http://www.bonsaiboy.com. They have some very reasonably-priced ones. The ones I got range in price from $24.95 to about $60. I’m sure it’s never to early to submit your Christmas list to Suite Suzy! 😉 The one that you absolutely cannot kill is the Hawaiian Umbrella…
Tamra – I checked them out & a few others. My b-day is sooner so….

Do yourself a favor… fuck mistakes & read between the lines! Just Saying…
