I'm new to bonsai (& this forum!). Since I got my 1st tree 6montgs ago, I read everything I can, have bought more trees , books, tools of the trade, etc. my husband (who has no other choice but be engulfed by bonsai as well) quipped "You don't have the patience!" True, patience is a quality I lack.
Today I came across a quote I thought appropriate! Frank Okamura answered, when ppl would lament they didn't have the patience, he'd say "Patience is what you need when you don't like what your doing." I 2nd that!! (although the anticipation IS killing me!!)
