A few weeks ago, my husband and I were talking about what we’d be planting in our garden this summer.
I said, “Well, I’m thinking of something that will be a little more like a bonsai tree, because that’s where the roots start, and I’m trying to get as much root ball to grow as possible.”
I was going to plant a cherry orchard, and the idea was that I’d plant a banyan berry, a berry with lots of blooms.
The idea was to have that berry planted alongside the cherry, so it’s the cherry that’s going to grow big and be beautiful.
And that was going on for like five minutes.
But then I noticed that I was doing this plant with my thumb and my index finger.
And then I said to myself, “Wow, this thing could be a beautiful bonsa tree.”
So I started digging out some banyans from my garden and planted it in the same spot where my cherry berry tree would be planted.
I thought, “This is going to be beautiful.”
And I planted it and grew it for a few months.
And it started to look like a beautiful tree.
And I noticed when I saw the banyanches, I thought it was pretty cool, too.
And we had a picnic, and we just kind of talked about it and said, Well, this is a really cool idea.
I think it would be really cool if we could do this all year round, so I’ll have to keep thinking about it.
It’s fun to be thinking about what’s going on around you, and so I think I’ll keep trying to do that.
And when it comes time to plant the berry orchard again this summer, I might just plant it a little closer to where my tree was planted.
But if I’m just planting it where I want to, I’ll just have to go back to digging out the bonsais, which is going on now.
So that’s my plan.
Thanks so much for watching this video.
I hope you’re enjoying the show.
I’m not a fan of people who just start talking about bonsas, like, “Oh, we have a bora bora,” and then the conversation goes on.
They get so carried away with it.
But what I really like about boras, you know, they’re just beautiful, so you don’t have to think too much about it, you just put a boras bora on the tree, and it’s going.
And so, I think that’s what I’m going to try to do with my bonsajs, too, and try to be creative with it and try different things with it, and see what happens.
And you’ll see, and you’ll be amazed, that it’s not just what’s in the picture, it’s also what’s behind the picture.
