I always enjoy the sight of the FedEx truck coming up the driveway. Who knows what it’ll be this time?
This time I received a mysterious box.
"What on earth could this be?", quoth I.
On further inspection I noticed the print on the side:
As long time readers know I have a little pen jing back in Roma. It provided a wonderful contrast in the bright and lofty chamber. I enjoyed it very much.
Here at the Sabine Farm, I had no pen jing, so, quite a long time ago, probably shortly after my return Stateside one time, I put a bonsai tree on my Amazon wish list.
This is a Carmona microphylla or Indoor Fukien Tea Tree.
I believe it may blossom.
I am not quite sure who sent this little tree, but I suspect blog reader LB, who wrote not long ago and mentioned bonsai.
