My little tree

Yesterday, I went out and bought a  bonsai tree. I often hear a lot of foreigners confusing the word bonsai with banzai. Bonsai is a small tree in a pot. I think banzai means something like "hooray". My bonsai tree is a plum tree. It is already past the season, but it will soon have many leaves... i hope.

How about you? Do you have any bonsai trees? How do you take care of them?

昨日買い物にいたり、盆栽を買いました。外国人は盆栽と万歳を間違えてるとよく聞こえます。盆栽は植木鉢にあるの小さい木です。「Hooray!」のようの意味と思います。私の盆栽は梅です。梅の季節はもう終わりですがもうすぐ緑の葉っぱが出ってくる。。かな。
