I confess. I was a bonsai newb for two decades. I started this blog site in September of 2016, twenty years nearly to the day, since I became fascinated with bonsai.
Back in ’96, I fell for the art… Got a book… Got a tree… Got another book… Got another tree… Nearly twenty years later I found myself thinking, “I can’t believe I’ve been doing this for so long, and I still don’t know what I’m doing.”
That’s when I decided to get serious. I started reading more and following bonsai bloggers. I researched and joined the local bonsai club, Northern Virginia Bonsai Society (NVBS). In a handful of months, my understanding increased markedly, and I hope my collection will show it in the coming years.
So this is me starting again – a second try at being a bonsai beginner – and I hope to share the journey with you. So, try to figure out where to click to follow Bonsai Iterate and come along for the ride.
