My main interest is growing bonsai trees. I've been a member of a club for just over five years, but I still regard myself very much as a beginner. A lot of people like to buy ready styled bonsai trees, but to my mind they are missing out on half the fun. It's much more exciting to go to a garden center and buy a small tree and style it yourself, or even to grow one from a seed or a cutting from a mature tree. Some of the people (mainly men) at my club go out into the bush and dig up old trees to style into bonsai, but I'm not big or strong enough to cope with most of those trees and have to restrict myself to smaller material.
I've always wanted to draw well, so I got a book and have been practicing every evening and am actually seeing some progress. I've been working on it for just a few weeks. Would also like to get more involved in photography, taking very crisp and moody portraits.
I have been studying up on natural remedies for quite some time. I absolutely love learning new things. It's fascinating how the body works, and the natural healing arts have always interested me. Healing, and diagnostics is an art form, and talent. With a back round in the medical and pharmaceutical industry, it would stand to reason that I would be. I also enjoy painting and drawing, so I have worn many hats in my life time, as well as a wife and mother for over 20 years.
