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.
