To detect "weak spots" on a tree it may help to look at the tree without colours.
So did I with the field-elm (witch-elm).
And I have to  realize that there is alot more to do for a balanced or succeeded


Again my bonsai-companion Andrew gave me the honor for a mutual styling session.
I continued my work on the elm-project and Andrew refined  the develeoment of
one of his field-maples.
In the subsequent foto-session I suddenly discovered the significance of the empty
spaces within this particular creation.

For me it is simply one of the best example for the importance of empty spaces according to
A cool tree at the early stages of  enfolding his venerability ...

 My display on Noelanders Trophy:

The big village-linden wanted to leave.

I am not bitter with that but very, very happy ...

Well, just for study purpose a thuja occidentalis.
I want to find out, if it is possible to develop a "bonsaioid" design within a reasonable 
period of time. A really ugly stump at that stage ...
But on the other hand i like Thuja so much, can't help myself ...
'Would like to see the original wildlings in Canada for example ..

And this is how it went on with the linden_clump,
before the winter styling-session .
The tree over all shorter, more compact and more designing options.
The moss was stolen by mean blackbirds!
It will be replaced after the carving and styling is done ...


Well, one of my trees decided to go to another garden.

The hollow-Linden made her way in the very south-west of Germany.
Because of her sheer size and weight, it was not possible to send the tree.
In the absence of a better transport-possiblity, I delivered the tree to the
new owner myself, while being on a business-trip southbound anyway.
The guy who bought the tree is a real gentleman, and so I am not a second
in doubt, that the tree will thrive in his garden ...
