Saturday’s Castleberry Hill Loft tour reminded me that I didn’t get a chance to share these photos from last year’s tour. This year’s tour stops were all interiors, but last year’s tour included a garden. Here’s a bonsai for scale —
Downsizing trees — this might be one way to have a personal forest for people who (like me as of October 6) don’t have a yard. This one was a paradise, and perfect viewing for a clear blue October day —
And, backing up for an overview —
An aside on downsizing — after all this time I’m still not quite downsized enough to be Hoarder Came Clean. Moving day arrived too quickly for me to finish, and I still have a storage bin (or two) to empty.
Wish me luck on that?

What a stunning garden. Such beautiful bonsai. Despite their small size they are really lush and green and I’m sure, the result of a lot of hard and careful work. For those with little space you could still be a dedicated gardener with these plants. Good luck with getting rid of the last of your hoard.
It is a wonderful freeing feeling to be working on the last of the hoard. I stopped at an antique store yesterday (to leave something, not to buy something) and didn’t even look at the treasures within. I put my Christmas cactuses in foster care, I wonder if that’s why I went looking for photos of a garden to post? Thank you for the ‘good luck’ — Sandy
I like how you say a few plants can make a personal forest. Very clever, and it’s interesting how a few plants can change the ambience of a place – making it more cozy, more sheltered, more welcoming. Good luck with the storage bins. For me it takes forever for me to get rid of stuff because I get so attached to a lot of the things I own.
Yes, attachment is a perennial problem of the human condition. I am so slow at downsizing, I think because I want to say a fond goodbye to the memories the stuff evokes. Then there is my frugality and my desire to put stuff on eBay. Thanks for the well-wishes — Sandy
Luck is due-fully wished. Bonsai’s (like all down sizing 🙂 ) is amazing
Thanks for your comment!
Lovely pictures. The art of bonsai is pretty amazing. Crazy how they manage to get them so tiny.
Lovely ‘baby’ trees, it’s hard to tell how old they are, isn’t it?
