I am enjoying a day away from the rat race and my 9 to 5 job. I will be doing the same tomorrow. It is my annual Bonsai weekend celebration which coincides every year with the Potomac Bonsai Festival at the U.S. National Arboretum in Washington DC. Tomorrow I will be spending a good portion of my day at the festival taking in the sights and buzzing around the vender areas. Today has been a rather lazy day. I performed some maintenance on my collection of trees in the form of their bimonthly feeding and some pest prevention tasks. I also created this design based on a traditional Japanese pattern. Enjoy!
