santa came in a UPS truck. A REAL hawaiian christmas tale

Post  kauaibonsai on Sun Dec 12, 2010 5:22 am

santa came to my house in a UPS truck the other day assisted by one of his elves in disguise

without a word, they left 3 large cartons in my yard.

curiosity got the better of me even though I knew I should wait. so I decided to open only one box. and what to my wondering eyes did appear, but a massive pre-bonsai parsons juniper!


all thoughts of waiting for christmas disappeared in a frenzy. the other two boxes were torn open. guess what was inside? a huge procumbens nana and an equally large green mound juniper. both grown in ground for bonsai.




the trees were green and healthy. some branches needed to be removed to open the thick canopies to the warm hawaiian sun and breeze. the first tree to get a haircut was the green mound. thinning underway.

next up was the parsons. thinning branches revealed a really nice trunk. front #1

front #2


last was the procumbens nana. a BIG boy

procumbens nana are slow growing, so a trunk this size means many years in the ground


the last job - today - was to get the trees in pots. green mound. fronts #1 and #2



parsons. front #1 and front #2



procumbens nana

Kauai,

Wow, you get Christmas early on your side. I am not allowed to touch my gifts until the 25th, at 5.00 a.m in the morning - ha ha. Great trees ! Season's Greetings from my side of the Tropics, where Santa vacations after Xmas.

Might I add, impressively safe neighbourhood, all those trees in the front yard and no electric fence.
Buone Natale.

North Pole Yamadori. santa Very nice. You must of been very good this year.

I love how when a box is marked this side up they deliver them upside down. Neutral
Are these from Lowes or only the boxes from Lowes?

happy holidays to all. thanks for responding to my foolish posts. there's still a little humor left in these old bones. anyway, thanks to you guys, again, all across the world. my palms are itching to work on the new arrivals, after they recover and get strong again.

be safe everyone.
