Happy birthday to my dear sweet baby girl. She’s been along on this Bonsai ride her whole life.
At 2 she slept through much of the (then)Wayerhauser collection near Seattle:
At 4, she was heavily involved in carving with power tools with Mr. Ron…or at least the contemplation and conversation just following:
And at 6, she was making sure Mr. Ron properly prepared wire for a nice Yamafusa pot while repotting the hawthorn:
By 9, she’s helping Sir Peter Warren prune a black pine during a demonstration:
Showing little brother how to Prune Shimpaku by 11:
And repotting Shimpaku by 13:
Then, the Bonsai pix drop off for a while…must be that teenager thing. Instead, we’re baking cupcakes with a Grandma Donna.
It goes fast. See those keys on the counter….?
