How To Water Your Outdoor Bonsai Tree
Bonnie Wilson / Thursday, 09 June 2011 01:28

The most important aspect of any bonsai tree care in the great outdoors is the water. You should not have a regular watering schedule for your bonsai trees. The frequency of watering depends on the type of tree, size of the pot, and type of soil.

What Is A Bonsai Tree?
Bonnie Wilson / Tuesday, 31 May 2011 20:49

The reproduction of natural tree forms in miniature is called bonsai. The word bon means pot, tray or container and the word sai is the tree or potted plant. So a bonsai tree is known as a tree-in-a-pot. A tree planted in a small pot does not become a bonsai until it has been shaped, pruned and trained into a desired shape. These trees are a great addition to your outdoor living.

Use Lights in the Great Outdoors to Decorate Your Garden and Yard
Bonnie Wilson / Tuesday, 03 May 2011 23:13

There are many different kinds of lights suitable for outdoor living in your yard and garden. You have to determine what you want to use them for.  Do you want a light bright enough to show your way down a path; do you want lights that are less bright to use as an accent; do you want a spotlight to focus on a certain area in the great outdoors or do you want a motion light. Solar lights will absorb the sun during the day and light up at night. You can also program electrical lights to come on at a certain time of the evening and shut off as the morning light brightens.

Spring is a super time to enjoy some great outdoor living. Everyone is tired of the cold winter months. Get outside and watch Mother Nature come alive in the great outdoors. But, wait a minute! Spring brings rain. Can’t really go for a walk in the great outdoors if it’s raining! So what can I do? Now is the time to work on the transition of the family from winter and going into the spring months.

Have Fun Feeding Birds In Your Yard

One of my great outdoor living pastimes is watching birds in my yard. I love to sit by the window or in the porch swing to watch them. I have mostly blue jays, finches, sparrows, robins and doves. I notice the doves are always in pairs. Blue Jays are loners while the finches and sparrows are always in a group and don’t seem to be in pairs. The robins may arrive two to four at a time; usually not just one, but not in a bunch like the finches or sparrows. Once in a while there will be a red headed woodpecker. There are so many different kinds of birds in the great outdoors, that sooner or later you will see one that is not familiar. A good bird book is a handy reference to have.
