Down the road, afternoon.

Outside Pierre's old house, an oak sapling in a crack in the tarmac, perhaps from an acorn dropped by a jay or secreted by a vole, appears to be bonsai-ing itself.

Ha, the expert on Japonaiserie!

They do say you can find trees that have made a start on the process naturally by starting to grow in small rock clefts, etc, and that perhaps this is how it started as an art form.

I rather hope and suspect the new inhabitants of the house are not such tidy gardeners as Pierre, and will allow the tree to develop a little longer.

Hardly an expert, sweet Lucy! I have heard that story, too. And I'm crossing my fingers for untidiness in the name of natural creativity.
