In early March I created this bald cypress pairing.  On the 31st here’s what it looked like.  Not so impressive.  But from humble beginnings….
A month later, the trees had responded like bald cypress responds, and I was able to get the initial styling mostly done.  Looking much better!

Here’s the first video segment on today’s work.  The new shoots, most of which are in the apex of the tree, are still quite tender but most are able to be wired and positioned.

And here’s the remainder of today’s work.  The initial styling of any bonsai is perhaps the most critical part of making the ultimate design.  You may not end up in the same spot you envisioned when starting out, but most of the time you end up pretty close.  With this BC pair, I have no trouble at all seeing the end-result.
