here are two pictures of “M”, my Juniperus communis Yamadori that I collected in 2004 in Austria. In 2005 I gave it it’s first styling at the “JOY OF BONSAI” in Bath (UK). Because this species is so very hard to maintain healthily, I made sure that it had recovered and was strong, before last year I finally planted it in its present first pot. And now, a year later, it is safe to give it it’s second make over! So tomorrow I finally will start to do, what I have been dying to do for all those long years! 🙂
I think that this is my first pre Bonsai that really has two really good possible fronts! So who knows? I might decide to style it with just that, two fronts!
I love this tree so much! It’s amazing twisting live vain and it lightning like Jin, all made by mother nature, are breathtaking! To be able to work on such a tree makes me very humble. This tree triggers my imagination to the fullest, so I can’t wait to start to work tomorrow! I will keep you all posted!
