Looking good...not my fault though. :p

Curious what is the dead thing...in the pot? Or is it just...dormant and looking bad?

That was a hibiscus. I keep them in the house in the winter now.
So you purchased more since loosing this one I assume. Since your just now sharing your first tree (bonsai) . I have one of my own for many,many years. It's a potted tree. Blooming like crazy right now. Noticed the braided trunk and was curious if it were one as well.

So new bench as well? Or just the tree is new?

Nice work on the bench. I might add that if the front stretcher (the 2x4 that keeps the front legs apart) was set back a foot or so under the bench, it would make standing close a bit easier. If the bench is only for display it probably won't matter, but if you work on the "bottom step" it might help. (unless you are extremely flat-footed)

Someone has found "plant lust" and is in denial - blaming it on others :rolleyes:

Hey Joe good start. You might consider adding the bottom step and also a slatted bottom. Remember that if your pots sit on a flat surface that when you water the extra will not flow out the bottom but pool because it is sealed by contact between the pot and shelf. Root Rot. So a stick or something similar under the edge of the pot will resolve this condition.

Nothing new here Darlene. The bench is 2 years old. I was just going through pictures and it just struck me to blame that first tree for all this madness. This is the bench in May of 2014.

I try and keep any pot that don't have feet on a grid. I'm going to make it to a meeting some day, promise.
