Bonsai stories don’t usually develop all that quickly, bonsai being largely a matter of time and what you do here and there along the way. But this one has been something.
Here it is today, 10 days out of the ground (and directly placed in a bonsai pot to boot).
It looks like I’ll have shoots to work with in a few weeks, at which time I’ll go ahead and wire some branches. The trunk of this tree is so neat, I don’t see how I can go wrong with the design.
Stay tuned for updates. It looks like they’ll be coming closer together than usual.
