The above photo is a Japanese maple. He had a bigger tree and he took and scraped bark off one of the limbs and then put a pot around that limb put in potting soil and left it. Then about a year later he had a brand new tree. See the little things that look like blooms? Now they are tiny seeds. This is going to be one of his little Bonsai trees.
watching him clip and wire and do all of the things to make the trees look more appealing.
So my husband in October drove around and looked at parks. They have them planted in parks so he gathered pine cones and did experiments. One bunch he just planted into potting soil, another group he soaked in water and the ones that float you remove and plant the rest. He now has 10 little tiny trees.
When my husband was taking pictures he took some of the blue berry bush. It is so pretty and I like how you can see they look like tiny bells.
I just thought I would share a bit of what we do on Saturday mornings. We sit and stare at trees a bunch.
Have a nice Saturday.
