after a lot of work, I just posted “THE STORY of XL” my Larch Yamadori Bonsai Part I on YOU TUBE!!! This progressive story in words, pictures and film follows this tree from collecting it as a Yamadori in Austria in 2004 right up to the present day 2016 as a Bonsai in a major Bonsai show! In short…the live of a tree that becomes a Bonsai in 12 years time told as a story for you all to enjoy…hopefully?! 🙂 Part II will be uploaded soon (I hope ?!)! It is a lot of surging troughs and improving old pictures, text, film and music and then the editing!! Boy o Boy! But seriously I enjoyed doing it and it is fun to see for myself just how much happened in the life of this old tree in all these years! And how amazing that process actually is! So I hope you will enjoy this story as much as I did making it?!
