Bonsai Exhibition

I LoVe BoNsAi

This Sunday just past we headed to the Pavilion to check out the Hamilton Bonsai Exhibition.  It was really amazing to see all the little miniature trees.  Some of them were so tiny it was hard to believe that they were over 20 years old.  The oldest one, that I saw, was nearly 40 years old.

I really love these tiny mini trees, I felt like a giant looking down on them, able to see them from all angles.  I especially loved the Bonsai forest scenes were there was a grouping of trees together, with little pathways around the trees, with falling leaves and tiny grass growing, it was really nice trying to imagine walking through the mini forest that someone had created.

Tasi and I both decided that we wanted our own Bonsai, though she would like to buy one already grown and I would like to grow my own.  I actually spent this evening looking around the property for possible seedlings that I could start training.

Asher loves hanging out with his little cousin Lydia, though I think she gets a little grumpy with him wanting to touch and play with her all the time.

After the exhibition we took the little ones out to play around the gardens, they were having a really good time.  Asher was having a bit too much fun at one stage, trying to climb into the lake.
