Welcome to my bonsai blog!

Welcome to my bonsai blog!

Look around! Use the Search box, browse the Archive, and leave comments. Click on any picture to enlarge it.
I would be honored to have you follow my posts. There are two ways to do that.
-- If you have your own blog, use Join this site
to have notifications of my posts sent to your blog's reading list.
-- If you don't have a blog,
use Follow by Email: new-post alerts will be sent to your email address. Pictures aren't included; that's just how Blogger does it. For the pictures you come here!
Fora and vendors that I can recommend from experience are listed in the right sidebar.
For more about the ads, and just why I enabled them, please see "About the ads," below.
"And the LORD God made ... trees that were pleasing to the eye ..." Gen. 2:9, New International Version.

"Bonsai isn't just something I do; it's part of what I am." Remark to my wife and daughter.

Why the Ads?

Google Adsense is enabled on my blog, for two reasons. First, while Google chooses the ads and I don't, they promise to try to tailor the ads to the site. They take into account the content of my posts, and the content of reader's comments, when they select the ads that appear here. So you should be seeing ads having to do with bonsai and gardening, as well as some more general ads.

I have not enabled "adult content" for my blog, and I never will.  I do not expect anyone to see anything objectionable. But if you do, please let me know immediately at treebeard20@gmail.com and I'll say something to Google. I think they're smart enough to listen.

As for my second reason for enabling ads: clicking an ad makes the advertiser happy, and they pay me and Google a little bit for just a moment of a reader's attention. But, at the same time, I would rather you enjoy my blog (assuming you do) without ever clicking an ad, than not visit here at all. I mean this. :-)
