Bonsai Egg

Recently my husband went to China. Yes, he left me behind and I'm sad about it. But I am thankful not to be suffering the severe jet lag that has plagued him for nearly a week! Getting older ain't for the weak folks. 

Naturally, he took photos and sent them to me. I was delighted to see he was enjoying himself. One of the photos was of a Bonsai Park. It was really amazing! (Obviously I should have been there to see it in person. If I can't have that however, I'll take the Bonsai Park vicariously. It's a park with tons of Bonsai...everywhere...I'll take it anyway I can get it!) 

 Behold the Bonsai Egg. It must have been inspired by the pictures. That seems like a logical conclusion.  
 

It's fun to make, delicious (healthy!) to eat, and downright whimsical! That checks all of my boxes. If it checks yours, read on!
