Introducing Percy – my new writing companion and inspirational tree. 

After much thought and mithering, I finally have my very own bonsai tree – Percy. He is a pepper tree and I hope he realises I do not have green fingers and he needs to be strong while I learn his requirements.

I love trees and The Ellfaenian Journals are inspired by the quirky unique trees I have seen in reality or in a photos. They all have a tale to tell even tiny ones like Percy. My hope is as he grows and develops so will the word count of the journals. Fingers crossed he will survive.

If you are a bonsai expert any useful tips would be much appreciated. The responsibility of Percy feels more pressing than the responsibility of looking after Nigel, my dog. At least he can tell me what he wants.

 

Happy writing.

    1. I hope my Instagram will be full of him flourishing and not just a collection of twigs. He lasted more than 24 hours in my company 😊

  1. I have previously killed two bonsai trees 🙁 definitely not green fingered! Hope you have better luck! xx
