As Ruth went off on her travels she left me with a present, a present which would require skill, care, lots of attention and most importantly-Love. That present was a bonsai.
After a shaky start, involving well I guess some would call it death, the bonsai has made a remarkable recovery and in all its glory here it is for the world to see:
Just look at that new shoot, reaching out, showing us what's made of!
Shame it has to be 'pruned' really...
