358/365 – Bonsai

Elliot had a bonsai when he was younger, and had been wanting another one for a while, so I got him one for his birthday. It sure has had quite the life so far. Pixel decided he liked it, and the first day we had it he ate a few leaves and dug at the dirt a little. I thought that it would be safe on top of the microwave (which is on a microwave stand), but he jumped up there and somehow knocked it off, spilling the top layer of rocks and sand, loosening the tree up, and somehow managing to break his water bowl but not the planter during this process. In the couple of weeks after that the little tree lost almost all of it’s leaves and I was sure it was dying. Elliot however was convinced it was fine, and sure enough, there is tons of new growth! The sun was shinning this afternoon when I stopped over, and I figured it was a perfect time to get some pictures.
