Thanks Guy Guidry of NOLABonsai !! I now have my very nice pre-bonsai hackberry that I will style in honor of my new baby girl. Some people said that because she is a girl I should create a flowering bonsai. I thought about it, but I wanted something that like my daughter, would develop slowly, and the more time and love I put into it, the better it would become. It will improve over the years,....and I can look back and show her that I started working on this bonsai when she was not even three weeks old.
I also picked a really nice green mound juniper bonsai from Guy for one of two door prizes to be given away at our Christmas party on December 11th!
