When minature trees are poems, said Princess Haiku.

don't tease me so, i will have to go to the botanic gardens if you don't stop!

now is the time to plan to plant here

Bellezza said...

You bring the Spring to me even when it is cold and rainy where I am, which includes my heart a little bit right now. Thank you for the little bit of color.

The Dream said...

flowering trees - not too many things better than that!

Princess Haiku said...

Belezza,
I understand the feeling and hope it warms up soon where you are.

i would really like to grow one of these. one year i tried to take a normal tree and turn it into this. IT. DID. NOT. WORK. you have to start from scratch. my daughter got me lily pad seeds and i want to make sure the sun stays out before i plant those. i am afraid they will die and i dont have seeds to replant them

they look so frou-frou ish. Like the French song Frou-frou: you can almost hear the little trees rustling their flowers like petticoats - look at me! look at me!

Phd girl planted two small Japanese Plums trees (up in the Catskills) and carefully tied several of the branches together --they grew together to form a nice archway to walk through. and the plums taste good, too.

Princess Haiku said...

A plum flower archway must be very lovely, Ched.

Yes, Lee..frou frou is the word. It's also why I love ballerina poppies too.

No, Calm..they grow in the garden where I have flute lessons.

Ascender, lily pad seeds sound really special. How do you get them to sprout?

Jackie said...

It makes all the work that people to growing bonsai well worth while. They are stunning.

Livia Salome Gnos said...

I have been searching for a bonsai here where I live... but haven't found the one for me... now I am dreaming of a flowering little tree... and poppys are smiling on my balcony

Princess--what was the Dash? The April Fool post?

princess haiku;

they come in this little kit; four little precious seeds. you put them in a container; distilled water seems to be the thing; changing the water every two or three days. they sprout after two weeks, leaf after two weeks, flower after two weeks (i note a trend)

i am going to take a photo and try to put the progression up on my blog every week. we'll see...

you wouldn't think the distilled water would be such a big deal. i see lily pads in the park all the time. the water hardly looks distilled; in fact it appears to need a certain amount of funk to it!
