This little Hawthorn was collected by me in 2007 in Wales (UK).
Below: Here are two before and after pictures from 2008 when I had just cut of all but four branches in its first styling
Below: This picture was made just after her very drastic hair cut! All wounds were sealed with cut paste!
Below: And this is the picture that I shot this afternoon in the makeshift foto studio in my living room. The custom made pot is by my dear friend: John Pitt. Height: 43cm
Why am I so proud of this little Hawthorn? Wel not only because it has turned into a well established Bonsai in such a short time, but more because of its amazing ramification! I have several collected older Hawthorns from the same Wales aria in my collection and they are treated and pampered just like this one but none of them comes even close ramification wise?! Hawthorns are notoriously slow branch growers, so this little one is probably that famous one in a million! And I am not complaining! I hope you like the picture as much as I do?!
