here are 2 pictures of my small Hawthorn that I am about to enter into the preselection for the next Noelanders 2015 trophy. The first picture is from Feb. 2008 when work started with a bare skeleton and the second one is now, still in its old training pot that will be changed with its new custom-made pot by John Pitt when the tree is dormant….so that it hopefully look great at the show…..if it makes it in that is!? 😉 It sadly is just too high to be placed into the Kifu-sized Bonsai section, which has special attention in this year’s edition, but I am glad it would be in the show anyway! I think this little tree has come far in such a little time! I hope you like it like this? I will post a picture as soon as the foliage has dropped off, to show its branch structure!
