I Have a new bonsai and I named it Viola

Yesterday to my surprise ,while browsing WordPress Viola Bleu my virtual friend and longtime blogger that I have been following for quite some time release the new blog post.

In it she announce that she bought a new bonsai and named it Joseph after me , a touching gesture that I didn’t really think a ” thank you” could express my thanks .

In my backyard unattended and ignored for 16 years a pine tree has been growing in a ceramic pot.

I had to look up a how to video on making a bonsai, I ended up repotting it adding fresh soil trimming the roots and branches . In hindsight I probably should have taken a before and after picture

But the end result I’m pleased with , for now I’ll have to let this pine tree rest and adapt to its new soil

I still have to shape the branches with copper wire and that in itself could take years!

Leo seems to approve.

    1. I’ll keep you posted , it’ll be a few months before viola gets accustomed to the soil. And then I’ll have to talk to someone who knows what they’re doing because I don’t have the foggiest idea what to do when it comes to shaping branches with copper wire.
