Bonsai summer days 盆栽夏の日

A couple of weeks ago we brought my German friends to the summer house. It was a fine summer day and I took the opportunity to collect a new bonsai, another juniper. The last juniper I took died, so this time I wanted to wait a bit to write about it until I’d know for sure that it’d survive.
二週間前ドイツ人の友達を別荘に連れて行った。きれいな夏の日で新しい盆栽をとる機会を捕まえた。今回、ビャクシンだった。二年前とったビャクシンが死んだから、ちょっと時間たって、大丈夫になるまでブログで書くのを待ちたかった。
It’s very convenient to take trees among the cliffs on the shore. First of all, they are already naturally small and thick due to the weather condition. But also, I don’t need to feel bad about taking them because there’s no chance they’d get big and turn into huge trees there.
崖で盆栽をとるぬはとても便利。まず、自然で天気のせいで小さくて太ってくる。また、木を取って気分が悪くならなくてもオッケー。だった、絶対にその環境で大きくてチャンとした木になれないから。
The only downside about cliffs is that some trees are impossible to get out. There are plenty of beautiful perfect little bonsais that just won’t move.
ただ、崖の間から取るのは無理な完璧な木がいっぱいある。もったいないなあ。。。Oh, and I was wearing my new summer sneakers that I got off the sale. ちなみに、セールで買った新しい夏スニーカーを履いていた。
After spending the day at the island we had great dinner at a restaurant by the lake. I had perch, nom nom nom…
一日を島で過ごしたら、湖の側のいいレストランでディナーを食べた。私はパーチを食った。美味しかった!
And here’s the juniper, do you think it will turn out to be a good bonsai? これ、とったビャクシンだ。どう思う、いい盆栽になれるの?
