Today, I did a little Bosai outside in the sunshine on my patio. I’ve been awaiting some important business news and my nerves are a little shot- so I turned to my little trees to relax. My favorite tree was ready to get out of its big pot and have its roots trimmed. I wanted oh, so, badly to just stick it in the gorgeous bonsai pot I bought for it, but alas, I have killed too many specimens that way. Bonsai has finally taught me a little (emphasis on little) patience. I trimmed its roots, and acknowleging my poor watering habits, I went ahead and put it in the ground under shady trees so that it could grow more small, local roots closer to the base. I will have to wait until next year, at the earliest, to see it in that pot! Sigh! Susan
