    Bonsai

    Back in the day it was a thing of mine. I'm revisiting the hobby with the intention I won't get carried away.

    35 year old Satsuki Azalea.

    Needed something for the porch.

    Looks good, was thinking of getting a bonsai again after a 15 year gap, just hope I still have the inclination to care for them properly will probably end up with 4 or 5!!

    Salty what is the longest you ever maintained a bonsai, from a little twig.

    I had a tea tree and I thought I was doing great had it for almost 3 years from when it was just a little twig in the dirt, then it just died on me, so now I will be getting a much more developed one

    Not so much from a twig but I've started several "gathered bonsai" , small trees in the wild and trained them.

    I had some for as many as five years but sold all of them when I moved and started collecting guitars.

    Salty,
    Very nice Azalea you have chosen.
    I have narrowed my collection over the years which has added more enjoyment.
    I will try to add a pic. Listening to my collection of wind chimes, and sitting in my garden, has added calm and tranquility.
    My idea of Bonsai is observing a specimen and it evoking a spirit or feeling of being in nature.
    Enjoy your tree,
    Mike
