Our second Water-elm hunt of the season happened today. This is the biggest specimen that came home with us (trunk base over 3″). Here’s one view of the tree before it got re-chopped top and bottom.
I’m not sure which front is going to be best. What do you think?
I’ve been trying to find a nice raft-style specimen for a few years now. I think this is a good candidate.
And finally for today, this is a smaller specimen but isn’t the character just terrific. Not to mention that it’s going to be an exposed root bonsai once the buried roots are visible again. Let me know what you think of these.
