One year ago October, our friends Kathy and Bob from Winchester, Virginia visited us. They gave us our first camellia bonsai tree. Since then I have been careful to make sure it was watered regularly here in the desert southwest. Although it is typically a late fall blooming plant, the little tree didn’t have any blossoms when we receive it. So, we have been anxiously waiting for it to bloom this fall, wondering if the buds were ever going to open. This image is the first blossom. 

Thanks again, Kathy and Bob for the lovely bonsai.

“Remember, when moving, 
There is no place that doesn’t move. 
When still, 
There is no place that isn’t still.

First seek extension, then contraction; 
Then it can be fine and subtle.

It is said,
If others don’t move, 
I don’t move.

If others move slightly, 
I move first.”
