The Rose & The Bonsai


Rose 2

My red rose is on my windowsill. I recently had to trim off some dead wood, and this is now what it looks like. So far, it appears to be healthy. I hope it will not be too long before I see blooms.

Oak bonsai

This is my little oak bonsai. It is now about 2 years old. It is less than 8 inches tall, and very sturdy. I trimmed the ends of the longer branches a few days ago because I want to begin shaping it now.
