Bonsai resurrection 盆栽生き返り

There hasn’t been that much bonsai blogging going on this spring. I’ve been very busy at school, rarely home at my parents place where they are residing. Also, I managed to kill one of my favourites, the beech, which made me feel very bad about myself. It gave me bad bonsai confidence I guess. My dad has been giving me bonsai updates via sms every now and then, and every time I get the information that all bonsais are fine and dandy, besides from the beech which is still dead. Still dead aye. Well, basically the buds didn’t want to burst. While the oaks are green and covered in leaves, the beech showed no signs of life. So, when I came home to my parents place yesterday I went out in the garden to confirm my dad’s report, thinking I might as well remove the tree, throw it away and reuse the pot. And as I feared, it had no leaves what so ever. Everything is green, but the beech. That’s not normal for a tree in june.
春に、ブログで盆栽についてあまり書いていないね。学校で忙しくて、盆栽が住んでいる実家に行く時間ほぼなかった。しかも、一番好きな盆栽、ぶなの木、をうっかり殺してしまった。そのため、悲しくて”盆栽自信”が低かった。定期的に父親に盆栽レポートをSMS経由受けている。いつも、”まだ死んでいるぶなの木いがい、すべての木は元気”って書いてある。まだ死んでいるか。ただ、蕾は綻びたくない。ほかの木、オークとか、は凄く緑になったのに。さて、昨日実家に着いたら、盆栽を確認しに行った。父親が言った通り、世界のすべては緑が、ぶなの木に、葉っぱが一つでもなかった。
BUT! When I looked a bit closer, this is what I discovered! Look, it’s still very much alive, just very very slow! Yay! It’s such a pretty little tree and I like it so much!
しかし!ポットから抜こうとしたら、詳しく見てこれを発見した!ほら、まだ生けているよ!ただメッチャ遅いんだもん!よかった!素敵なチビ木だし、本当に好きだから嬉しい!
And yes, this tree has some wire damages from last year’s beginner’s mistake. But hopefully they will grow away. At least its alive! By the way, it’s summer now. The flowers, I love them! Especially the honeysuckle that smells so wonderful at night.
そうだよ、この木は去年の素人間違いからのワイヤー損傷がある。成長したら、消えるんだったらいいね。せめて生きている!ちなみに、夏になった、今。花がいっぱい、きれいだね!特に夜に香りが強くてよく感知できるスイカズラが好き。
