Bob a bonzai tre is a twisted warped up little tree made that way by human hands. Takes more dedication and work thanI would ever want to invest. I don't care what the anger management councilor said I AM NOT GONNA DO IT!!! I'm alright now. I'll cool down in a minute or two.......

The third (and final) time my father retired, he got into bonsai. The little trees took a full work day, every day. Some of them have to be spritzed hourly on a hot summer day or they dry up and die.

Water barrels sprouted behind the garage, collecting rainwater from the roof (city water has too many chemicals for the tiny plants). Cold frames and even a tiny greenhouse appeared in our back yard. Considering that as a kid he raised corn and melons andnever did much manual labor after that, it was amazing to see him root-pruning the way people play chess -- studying (and spritzing), turning the tree this way and that, removing tiny snippets of root. And shaping trees with incredibly regular windings of copper wire.

He got to be very good at it. One maple, about 18 inches high, had a trunk nearly 2 inches in diameter and was spectacular in the fall. Another, a grove of 8 or so birch trees (birch-like, anyway), was a thicket that would fit on a cookie sheet, complete with rock outcropping, moss and pure, coarsewhite sand.

They didn't survive the move to Florida. Wish we had pictures of them, but he was too busy tending them to photograph them.

Bonsai is not really plants. They're more like pets, but they don't chew the dining room table leg or shred the curtains.
