Bonsai at 255 years old
This bonsai in the Japanese Pavillion at the Montreal Botanic Garden is 255 years old. Now that sign hasn't changed for a few years now but still... this is a long time to live in a pot.
Every time I see this plant, I simply stand in front of it and wonder what it has seen - who has cared for it - fed it - pruned it - indeed loved it.
I silently thank them and the tree every chance I get.
