a new pet*

*Not actually a pet.  But it's little and cute enough to be!
After seeing all those beautiful bonsai in Canberra, I've been thinking about wanting a bonsai. But they're very picky to take care of and need to be outside, so I decided to give it a miss.  But then I saw this adorable little plant in a local florist shop.  He was there for over a month, all alone, with no-one to love him.  He kept looking at me with those adorable puppydog eyes, and finally I gave in.

He's not a real bonsai.  He can stay inside and you have to keep water in the dish all the time.  I just hope I can keep him happy!
