I have kept something alive for 3 years! When I graduated from college, my father-in-law gave me a bonsai tree. It's grown some, and I haven't messed with it a whole lot (probably why it's still alive.)

Anyway, a coworker of mine has bonsai trees as a hobby, so she said she'd help me repot the little guy. I bought all my supplies, she brought special soil, and we set up on a picnic table outside of work yesterday.

Here's the final product!
Next year, before the growing season (we were too late this year), I'll clip all the leaves, and they'll come back miniaturized, to fit more in proportion with the bonsai. I just have to keep it alive! :)


  1. How cute! Almost everything is fascinating when it's smaller-than-life. Dollhouse furniture, toy breed dogs, baby shoes, and yes, bonsai trees!

  2. What a fun lunch date. Wa hoo--it''s...alive!

  3. It looks great... good job!

  4. That's awesome, Lyd. How sophisticated...

  5. I know! Now I just need my little box of sand for a zen garden, and I'll be set!
