Here are some more wonderful specimens I’ll be working on in the future.

Here’s a terrific clump style with a 3″ base.  I was simplifying it (it was a real thick bush), and pretty much stopped when I got to this point. Are all of the trunks suited to the final design?  Time will tell.

Here’s a single-trunk specimen.  It’s a little different that what you usually see, but that’s what nature will often do for you.  This another specimen with a 3″ base, and it’s currently 21″ tall.  I can see it ending up at that height.

Either this specimen or the next one win the prize for the best tree of the day.  Isn’t the shari on this one fantastic!  The trunk base is 2.5″, and it’s 15″ tall.  I literally can’t wait to see how it turns out.

So is it the one above or this one?  I’m torn at this point, but I suspect as they develop a favorite will emerge.  The base on this tree is 3″, and it’s 21″ to the tip of the tallest trunk.

I’d love to hear what you think about today’s haul.  Leave me a comment below.
