last week there finally was a long enough break in the cold spell, we had over a month now, to get my Favorite Hawthorn out off its winter shelter and strait into the living room, where I spend two peaceful afternoons of slow wiring it again! With on eye on the TV, where I saw us (The Netherlands) won 2 colds and a few other medals in the world ice speed skating championships in the man and female competition! The sound of the TV was off though because I needed my ears to listen to some pumping dance beats! After all: a serene atmosphere is important when one works on Bonsai!
Below: This is how it looks after the wiring was done and all branches were placed in their desired position.
The branches are filling out nicely by now and I really like how it is progressing towards what I had in mind when I started to style this lovely Hawthorn.

That is a beautifully proportioned tree, and you have truly enhanced it’s appearance. It’s nice to know it is in good hands. (You Lucky Man.)
