bonsai tree care





bonsai general - 41 views



really do not know if this tree will get into show Kokufu this year, but a client of Suzuki had already asked that we try. I was given the task of wiring for the show. I really liked this small tree. It is not old, but I had fun which is a kind of modern feel. The last photo is Matt and coil Yusuke one night when we were all working late at the workshop.
