Here it is the end of April, and I’m still procrastinating about writing here.  We’ve settled nicely into our new apartment and are enjoying it’s cozy ambience.

I’ve hung a tiny Hummingbird Feeder that has been totally ignored by the hummers I IMG_5049know are here.  The reason I put it up was that a hummer came right to the window, as they used to do in New Hampshire when the feeders were getting low.  I took it as a sign, and went right out and got a little feeder.  (It has to be small since it has to be removed when the window cleaner guys come.)  That’s OK.  At the present rate, even the tiny one is too big!!!

Earlier this week our Garden Committee sponsored a trip to the Weyerhauser campus to see the Rhododendron Garden and the Pacific Bonsai Museum (in Federal Way).

It was a fabulous trip.  I LOVED seeing the Bonsai.  I hope I’ll have the opportunity to spend even more time there in the future.

We were gone to the East Coast for 4 weeks!  It was a wonderful trip, but I have to admit, we returned EXHAUSTED!

The plants all survived very nicely, thanks to my good friend Helen, who came once a week and watered.  The only plant I figured I’d probably lose was the Bonsai.  BUT, although it looked awful…lots of dead “stuff” in and around the little branches, I figured I had nothing to lose, so I pruned it and really just TORE OUT the brown clutter.  Guess what?  It now looks terrific!  Better than it’s looked since I got it!  I’m back in the BONSAI business!

If you look at this photo, it shows how it looked when I got it…more or less like a little bush.  No longer!  I’m happy!!!IMG_1432
