Ugly Wires & Skinny Arms

I took my first crack at styling a bonsai tree yesterday. I chose to start with the white cedar (Thuja occidentalis) because it seemed to have better structure than the juniper, and the branches seemed like they’d be easier to work with. 268 kata lagi

Three new additions

Finished last year off with a new tree when Susan gave me a lovely sturdy Crab Apple for my birthday in December.
