If you're a child of the 80's, you are hearing Mr Miyagi crying this out in his drunken woes.

But I'm a grown up now and have always loved bonsai.  I've bought many books on the subject.  I've attended classes on the subject.  I've dragged poor old Son C out on a public holiday to view showings of the subject.

I've also killed every actual plant I've ever owned.

A couple of years ago, my Mum finally bought me the bonsai plant I couldn't kill.

A plastic one.

I left it on the BBQ.  It disintegrated in the sun.

I killed the un-killable bonsai plant.

So, with spring in the air, amid a rush of gorgeous weather and new season growth, I took up the hobby again on the weekend.

I'll keep you posted how this goes.... I can already hear my mother laughing.

Goodnight, all!!

Linking up with the fabulous Jess for #IBOT


  1. Oh good luck! I would never tempt the Universe and try to keep a Bonsai, a fried traveled for some time and asked me to look after hers...let's just say it wasn't a good idea... Josefa from #teamIBOT

  2. Ha! I love that you killed a plastic plant! Good luck with the new one :)

  3. Bahaha that is too funny. Killing a plastic plant lol!

  4. Oh I always wanted to learn how to grow one! Maybe I'll look into it too!
    Good luck :)
