Whirlwind Getaway, Day 2, Part Two: The Humans Don’t Know When To Quit

Loki Speaks...

Triple ugh.  If anything, it has gotten hotter.  The humans are all drippy and wilty.  They think it is time for lunch.  Lunch someplace cool.

(later) What?!  By my pointy little horns, these two have NO imagination.  They have returned the SAME restaurant at which they ate yesterday, and have ordered the exact same dishes.  Pitiful, that’s what it is.

Somewhat restored, we have all returned to the garden to see what other delights there may be.

Look, Sigyn!  There is an (indoor!) exhibit of miniature trees.  Come stand next to one for scale.  I don’t really understand the mortal fascination with making things as small as possible, but I will admit it—this does look like a regular, large tree.  Very well done.

The gentlemen at the entrance said we could vote for our favorites in the show, but this specimen doesn’t have a number.  Oh, I see why. …

Bonsai Kas: Bonsai, drawings, scale models and more

Since my “Chicken Proofing” post I was planning to make some nice benches for my Bonsai. I finally got to it even though ALL chickens got eaten by a fox overnight. *Poof* and they’re gone, I miss them, they were almost tame enough to eat out of my hands.

But ey, life goes on, there are Bonsai to spoil, so off it was to the local building market to get some wood and fittings.20170326_155301

In The Netherlands you can get these metal fittings to secure beams to a flat surface, which when turned over make a perfect scaffold for Bonsai benches.20170327_130642

After a flip over and some poles in the ground there you go.20170327_133948

Which look even better with some Bonsai on them, plus it makes your wooly thyes tingle with manliness.20170327_16175420170530_141809

Weed and Feed

Bonsai Iterate

No. Not weed and feed like the combination fertilizer and weed killer you put on your lawn. Keep that stuff far away from my bonsai. I mean “weed and feed” as in, “If you feed the critters, you may need to weed more often.”

Can you tell what you are looking at here?


I suspect a squirrel or chipmunk carried as many sunflower seeds as it could shove in its mouth and spit ’em all out into a little hole they dug I the bonsai soil. This is the second such cluster I found this week!

Stay out a my pots ya little whipper-snappers!
