    I have none. I only have 1 tree in my yard, a gum tree. Used to have two orange trees but I forgot where they were and ran over them with a lawn mower last summer when the grass got out of hand because it kept being to wet to mow without getting bogged.

    I really like the bonsai trees that look like normal trees, only very small:

    This is another superb example:

    I had a bonsai tree myself for a while, but it started throwing out green shoots with almost full-sized leaves, and eventually just looked like a plant. I'd say this is an example of a bonsai that just looks a plant:

    This next bonsai has the right kind of proportions, but the bonsai enthusiast has cheated, by simply putting a normal-sized tree in a pot (I would question the wisdom of drawing attention to the fact by sitting in the tree, but never mind).

    Mine all look like small trees. Well apart from one which is extremely young, although it doesn't look as terrible as that horrible plant looking thing. The guy should've sat on that instead, and put it out of it's misery.

    I would tell him that but I was the one who was supposed to water it while he was on Holiday so I don't want to bring it up.

    I like bonsai trees, there is something very cool about mini versions of bigger living things, like mini fountains and mini cactus. I like venus fly traps to

    I'm no expert in gangland "hits", but a shooter feels like overkill, if you're trying to bump off what is basically a tiny little tree. I would go for something more subtle, like... NOT WATERING IT.

    In any case, I hope the killer didn't bury it under a patio, because that could go horribly wrong.

    The more I look at the picture on the left - especially the area around the base - the more I feel it's actually a very small man?
