Summer travel season rubber snakes field …

bonsai general - 25 views



Class of seasonal summer this year was in the habit improvised and totally off the wall outlet field, as has been frequent familiar to students. The memorable of this session was a trip to the dollar store to buy rubber snakes … to scare birds. Which it is sad, as I enjoy pretty birds. What I do not like is the replacement of moss that have destroyed and putting more fertilizer granules which have been turned in the search excited by insects.

It started as a joke, really. What we find in the store were snakes for children, which when put in increased water to 60% of its size, since it was not really rubber, but a little sticky stuff sticky fear never let anywhere near a boy.

Interestingly our joke worked. We have not had an attack of birds, since although not keep me active in the mornings it moves around snakes so that birds do not realize. Well, it may be that over time, but I’m pretty happy to have a couple of weeks off.

What others bought at the dollar store is not for publication-

The evidence we really were in the dollar store and actually bought snakes rubber there. John and Linda Conn Shotwell pose with their purchases-

This was my day to be taught in the study of bonsai … a smart phone had a bubble level was new in itself, but when I put a student on task to make a plumb line for a new slant on a juniper, I never would have thought of this!
