Day 107/365

“In Japanese culture, the bonsai tree symbolizes harmony and balance between nature, man and soul. This representation has since been universally adapted.”


Well I managed to cycle home on my bike without getting blown off by the wind, straight under the path of a lorry behind me! I’ll admit, I didn’t feel completely safe, but hopefully the windy weather is now behind us! Plus I managed to get a 3 mile run done this morning after I got to work, so in all, its fair to say the exercise regime is back on!

Got home to a package from Amazon, my bonsai tree food and cutters arrived! Now I can try a second time to look after a bonsai tree. The first time was in a pre-internet era, and the information that would really have helped just wasn’t available without spending a fortune on books! I think its safe to say I won’t be asking the wife to help look after it, in the plant world she is know as “the evil one” or “the plant killer” as her ability to leave plants without water for months on end is almost unparalleled!

I’m hoping our baby will have a bit more success than our houseplants!
