Back in college I had two pets- an orange tabby cat named Worm, and a bonsai tree. Sometimes I think that tree required more attention then the cat. Seriously, when I went away for a weekend I put out food and water for the cat but had a friend come over to water the bonsai with very specific I instructions.
It was a pretty little thing in a blue dish. I used to love pruning it with tiny scissors and enjoyed the little white flowers that would periodically bloom.
The cat lived a very long and happy life, but unfortunately my bonsai tree didn’t survive the college years. So when CommercialSilk contacted me about trying out a fake plant, first thing I did was check to see if they had a bonsai that looked like mine.
