Monday, I am grateful...
...for my little plant Weedy. I know he may not look like much but he makes me smile nonetheless. He's a Jack Pine seedling, found in a mini bonsai kit I received as a gift. He survived a lot in his short life - he lost his brother in a wind storm, he took a nasty fall, and he was nearly uprooted when a drunken musician accidentally kicked him over. I think it stunted his growth. Ah, but he's a little fighter and has finally started to grow a little more. As you can see, he does not look like a bonsai tree just yet. He will, however, in about forty years. Regardless, I still think he is a handsome little plant.
