Bonsai

Is anyone interested in bonsai? I have been working with them now for about 25 years and I love it!

Bonsai is what you do to trees to train them into certain shapes and to control the size of the leaves and the tree. If you remember watching the original Karate Kid, Mr Myagi was trimming the little trees.

Deb, you should try it. It's fun!

San Francisco

Here in San Francisco we have a bonsai society and even a bonsai museum. They would host periodical bonsai exhibits. I am not originally a fan of bonsai but after attending these shows, I was amazed and found them to be exquisite.

And the community is very strong, friendly, and supportive. They encouraged me to get involved and gave me a detailed tour of the trees. I recommend you look for a local bonsai club.

Noah - I missed this message somehow. I've looked for a group in my area and I've found a couple of individuals, but no group or club. The closet club that I found was on the other side of the state. Asheville NC has a group. I joined a bonsai forum and learned alot.

howzedesiree - It can be alot of fun!
