The Most Beautiful Time of The Year
This is such a beautiful time of year in Portland that I just have to post another garden photo. Look closely and you will see this azalea on my front porch is planted in a very shallow pot that is sitting on top of a little ladder. Thanks to my son, Andy, it was pruned in the cascading bonsai style over 15 years ago. Yes. Fifteen! It amazes me that it continues to thrive in this small pot and endures some pretty cold winters. He was fascinated with The Karate Kid movie and Mr. Miyagi's bonsai at the time. He continues to be a much better pruner than I am but all the little trees he began, plus a few more, continue to live with me. This one amazes me every spring!
