Dear Walter, watched all the photos of year 2007. All of them are amazing. You know what is the best thing about your bonsai-making? You love your art and you love your trees too! You don't torture them.That's why your trees look very healthy and well-maintained. At least I think so. In India we say,'older the tree, wiser it is.
