Hi, I’m Gina. Some of you will know me from other sites. If you don’t recognise the name, perhaps you’ll recognise the camera.
I’m hoping to catch up with some old friends here, and hopefully make a few new ones too.
My passion is growing bonsai trees but I probably won’t be discussing them too much here as most of that content will be reserved for my blog, which is all about my life among my trees. Perhaps they’ll pop up from time to time as part of another discussion though.
My blog has been taking up a lot of my time since I decided to move it from BlogJob to Blogger, but thankfully that’s done now, so I can find time to write about other things too. I tried starting a second, more general purpose blog, but that hasn’t really been going to plan. While writing there I found I missed the sense of community that I used to experience at sites like the defunct Bubblews. Hopefully I’ll find it here.
I live in South Africa, so you can expect a bit of seasonal confusion. While most of you are enjoying summer right now, it’s winter here. I’m really longing for spring, when my bonsai trees will wake up from dormancy. That’s got to be my favourite time of the year!
Aside from bonsai my interests include photography and watching television – I watch far too much! – and I’ve been trying to reawaken my love of reading. I’d get a lot more reading done if I didn’t spend so much time online.
Oh, and I’m quite passionate about cricket, mainly when the South African team are in action. I wonder if there are any fans here.
My worst habit is sitting at my computer into the early hours of the morning when I really should be asleep. I’m trying to change though, so hopefully I’ll soon be restricting my time here to more sensible hours.
And now it’s time to start exploring this exciting new site before it gets too late.
