It’s strange that’s it’s already been a year since my babies were just small black dots with tiny green mohawks.
They’re about four inches tall now.
I should explain. At the beginning of the pandemic, I planted six Japanese Black Pine trees to bonsai. Growing a bonsai tree from seed is called ‘misho.’
It will be at least five years before they’re big enough to be called a tree, but I figured there was a chance lockdown would be over by then.
Somebody gave the seeds to me and I had no idea when or how to plant them. Google said the three best times to plant a tree were:

If we want to sit under the shade of a beautiful tree, we probably should have planted it a few decades ago. Seeing as we didn’t, the next best time is right now; late is better than never!
Even if we don’t get to sit in that shade very long before, it’ll make a beautiful shelter for generations to come.
