tiny kingdoms

A tree is considered too huge and unruly to bring indoors, unless you choose the docile bonsai. We have four bonsais in the house, in various stages of surrender. Tending them is an exercise in patience, but also a show of power. We love them because they’re beautiful. We love them because they make us giants.

Apparently there are "indoor" and "outdoor" varieties of bonsai plants. People who struggle to keep theirs alive indoors usually blame themselves when, in fact, they have the wrong plant.

I just read this yesterday, then yours today. And I wouldn't know a bonsai if I fell over it

They do make us feel like giants. :)
