Last saturday we had snow! Again! But yesterday was really nice, mild and just lovely!
And I did’nt eat a pizza since…. let’s say ages!!
The Pizzeria da Nino in the Eigerplatz is really sublime. Thin dow, delicoius tomato sauce, not to big , just right!
In my eye every month has his color: january is white, august is orange and april is yellow.
Spring is coming but, the forrcast is giving frost for the next days. Altought most of my plants are outside and not specificly protected not for the shohin, i am not woried.
Here some spring herald
Ok, I don’t have a clue how to cultivate Kusamono’s but they always fascinate me. The sweet little pots contain this delicate tiny flowers, the freshness they transmit, the youth and grace they possess, although after all, it’s only weed!
I decided to give it a tray and transplant some of the weed (Japanese = kusa) that I have in the garden in small pots. The pots are really nothing special and I am looking forward to purchase some new one on the next Bonsai workshop in the upcoming months.
Back to the topic: my biggest concern was the soil. Should I use Akadama? Or Keto will be better? Or maybe just the same soil from the garden? Well, I don’t know I used all three and will figure out how the Kusamonos will progress.
What do you think? Can you give me any advice?
I find this wonderfull video on vimeo. Is just a dream. Hope you like it like I did.
