if it wasn't for bonsai
« on: September 04, 2009, 07:25 PM »
Sundown checking on the collection after a deluge of a rain and I thought the World was ending. A C-130 flew right over my head so close I thought it was going to lift me off the ground. What a roaring rush. Homestead Airforce base is close by but I have never seen a transport plane that close overhead here. So it wasn't over. As I tracked this Monster banking South back to base, it flew into a perfect 180 degree, ground to ground, living color, perfect rainbow. It was a ten and I am exhausted.

Don, this is not the place for political commentary. 

All, we prefer that the conversations had here relate to bonsai, as it states on our logo, "Simply Bonsai".


We appreciate your understanding,

Gary,

In an effort to get this thread onto the topic of bonsai, how are your trees taking the rain?  I've heard (read) you mention the suggestions of others that you grow under glass or plastic.

It is raining here, can't imagine what we did before 2005, back when it didn't rain in the summer.  john

We spent so much time in school to be well rounded, join every club, jack of all trades...just a habit I guess. Us seasoned old farts like to veer off course once in a while to keep it interesting so if it bothers you I am sorry. Good comes out of diversity.
Tropicals love rain, sub-tropicals hate it, never get a chance to dry out.

Of all the new foliage on different plants, there is nothing as beautiful as the fresh green color of new pine needles. My  Austrian black pine is finally breaking out a few needles from the candles.

I find it hard to believe you view that as political commentary.  It was actually a joke, but I guess that would not be bonsai either.  oh well.  sorry.   :-*
