Bonsai, the Japanese art of growing miniature trees in containers fascinates me. It is such a beautiful craft, and many of the tiny ornamental trees are cultivated over long periods of time. I have killed approximately two of them. And though I thought I had learned my lesson, I would like to try my hand at another. Hmm.
I took these photos of these beautiful bonsai trees on that same Asheville trip. These were on display at the Asheville Botanical Garden.
Moments after I took these photos my daughter got her first bee sting. She had been wearing neon yellow socks and the bee had crawled into her shoe. Ouch!
