The Forest Floor – Transformations with Life #8

Originally posted on FOUND – The Repurposed Design Company:
After planting the four maple seedlings I added some garden moss to keep the soil moist and then I put it in the sun. A few days later other plants started to grow. It looks very much like the floor of the forest with the trees high about and tons of life struggling fort a little… Continue reading The Forest Floor – Transformations with Life #8

Little Trees – Transformations with Life #4

Originally posted on FOUND – The Repurposed Design Company:
I have all these little maple trees growing all over my yard. At first I wasn’t sure what to do with them. Now I have a few ideas. Always fascinated with Bonsais, I thought I could possibly do my own with a Canadian twist. Taking some of my electric-fired, Raku-styled tea bowls and using them as… Continue reading Little Trees – Transformations with Life #4

When I added this little indoor hanging plant, I wasn’t sure… Continue reading The Reaching Pot – Transformations with Life #9

The earth was so dry and hard packed, that I broke the small shovel I was using to… Continue reading Reaching for Nirvana (Transformations With Life #14)

Bonsai on a Coral Reef (Transformations With Life #13)

This little plant was hard to catch. It was hiding in a dry patch of a massive field of wild flowers. I’m not certain, but it might be a baby smoke bush. There are some bigger trees with similar leaves nearby, or maybe they are overgrown bushes. Anyway, they are growing wild in this field. Late… Continue reading Bonsai on a Coral Reef (Transformations With Life #13)
