bonsai general - 24 views
This sweet little pine has been in the Puget Sound area (northwestern US) since 1989. It was picked up by John Muth. Some of you may remember that from the deck of Bonsai Clubs International in 1992. I remember seeing an exhibition of bonsais years in Seattle, sitting in a corner, looking very distinguished. Recently this tree becomes a client of mine, and reworked.
In 1992 fewer possibilities for the style of this tree existed. Only a few branches unramified were present, as is often the case with freshly picked Ponderosa. Now we have more complex branching options. It is a good example of a Ponderosa that over time has done pretty neat work growing out of branches and branch.
