Goodbye Balls

I have been in serious denial about Ball’s health. Ever since I took him to class last year to be re-potted, its been downhill from there.

Though I faithfully watered him and hoped (almost prayed even) for new roots to take hold, it wasn’t to be and I finally plucked up the courage to pull Balls out of the pot to check for new roots.

It wasn’t too be and he had in fact probably not had some for some time. This was pretty devastating for me, since he was Lindsay’s bonsai that Poppy had given him when he died. Now that Linz has died too, I wanted Balls to survive to remember him by. But I needed to let Balls go and so this will be the last post for Balls.

My first bonsai casualty since Pop died. Goodbye Balls…..
